Omega Sensors is a MEMS accelerometer start-up based on technology developed at SPAWAR, where Braun had worked as a former consultant with BearingPoint.
The second place finisher was AlisTech, an oncology biotech venture led by Nick Boyle, Brian Guzik, Vanee Pho, Mike Sitzmann and Bill Warner, all from the class of 2007. AlisTech received a $10,000 second place prize and continues to be one of Rady’s brighest Lab to Market success stories.
