TEC Edmonton alumnus Scanimetrics, winner of the very first VenturePrize award in 2003, has been written up in the Edmonton Journal business section on Tuesday, April 10, 2012. The story is entitled "Small solution to big problem: Edmonton firm's tiny sensors help Syncrude avoid huge repair bills."
Good to see a home-grown company, a spinoff of research from the University of Alberta, start to see serious success after years of hard slogging. Led by Syncrude's favourable reviews of Scanimetrics stress-sensing miniature technology, Scanimetrics' stress measuring solutions are being examinated for all kinds of other global appliations.
VenturePrize 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the prizes, with a gala dinner and awards night planned at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton on Thursday, April 26.
Tickets are $80, or $720 for a table of 10 and can be purchased online at www.ventureprize.com
