MassVentures is pleased to announce that four out of the five Massachusetts companies who were presented with the prestigious Tibbetts Awards for 2016 from the United States Small Business Administration are MassVentures START program alumni.
The four companies are: Ginkgo Bioworks (Boston), GVD (Cambridge), Physical Sciences, Inc. (Andover), and Triton Systems Inc. (Chelmsford).
The Tibbetts Awards, according to the SBA, “are presented annually to those who are beacons of promise and models of excellence in high technology. Winners are selected based on the economic impact of their technological innovation, and the extent to which that innovation served federal R&D needs, encouraged diverse participation, and increased the commercialization of federal research.”
The MassVentures’ START program received the Tibbetts Award in 2015.
