The next round of aspiring entrepreneurs has been selected to present at the next NH High Tech Council Entrepreneur Forum. Leveraged Developments of Portsmouth and Blok Box of Lebanon will present their business plans and product ideas to and receive equally targeted feedback from a panel of industry-specific experts specially selected for each company. The Entrepreneur Forum will be held on Wednesday, October 16, beginning at 5:20 p.m. at FIRST Place in the Millyard in Manchester.
Founded by serial entrepreneur Jeffrey Carlisle, Leveraged Developments has developed a fluid control module, Breeze™, which forms the heart of an intravenous (IV) infusion pump. Breeze offers many unique features that differentiate it from conventional IV pumps, including a faster load and prime time, continuous operation design, and a simpler surface for easier cleaning.
Blok Box changes the leasing industry’s $19 billion default rate by providing a payment enforcement tool as effective as that of an electric utility provider—an “off” switch. The patented Blok Box is a remotely-controlled disabling device that provides leasing companies with immediate enforcement control of any electrical equipment that is 110 or 220 volt powered. Additionally Blok Box functions as a surge protector.
Between the two presentations a “Sky Dive” will be held, during which an early stage company, nonprofit or student-driven entity focuses on a specific challenge or opportunity they are facing.
