Gross McGinley Proudly Sponsored Ben Franklin Technology Partners’ Venture Idol 2014

November 24, 2014 | Category: Events | Tags:

Gross McGinley’s Intellectual Property Group was proud to sponsor Ben Franklin Technology Partners‘ Venture Idol 2014 event on Thursday, November 20, 2014. Venture Idol is a cross between Shark Tank® and American Idol®, but with great networking and food.

After earning their way through the afternoon selection process, three technology company entrepreneurs briefly pitched their start-up companies to investors and attendees. Audience members decided how to “fund” the companies. With $100 of “Ben Bucks,” each guest distributed his or her investment dollars in whole or part among the three finalists. Ben Franklin will later invest $15,000 in real dollars to the companies based on the “crowd-funded” audience vote.

This year’s Venture Idol winner was EthosGen. EthosGen produces a proprietary on-site alternative energy waste-heat-to-electrical-power generator that produces electricity from sustainable and renewable sources. EthosGen’s generator produces energy from waste heat from industrial, solar, and biomass sources. The power produced provides on-site, consistent, secure electricity in a highly sustainable and environmentally conscious manner by capturing current, emission-free waste heat streams.

Congratulations to all of the companies that participated!
