    Best quip...after question to Omni Hue LED Plant Light about businesses being targeted and answer "the low hanging fruit is the medical marijuana growing market " ... from audience "also the high hanging fruit!"

      Missed that during the presentation. Too funny. I definitely think the Omni Hue presenter should have led with the medical marijuana and/or other specific use cases before talking spectrums and wave lengths.

    I missed it as I was stuck at another meeting. Any chance I could get the highlights and a pointer to the presentations? Was the event recorded?

    Excellent group of presenters this time. From gift books to networking app to grow light to shopping app. With good questions from the audience. And great networking energy in the room following the presentations.

    Hi All, There is an immediate need for a Mentor to work with a team that hopes to attend the National Science Foundation's July I-Corps program.

    It is a 7-week, part-time program that takes 10 to 15 hours per week of your time. In the last year or so we have connected 18 teams to exceptional Mentors who have already participated in the entire program.

    There are real benefits from being part of the cohort. Could you reach out and talk to me about your potential involvement? Thanks
