First Flight Venture Center is delighted to host lunchtime programs, “Itineraries” that offer a chance for members of the First Flight community and broader innovation ecosystem to learn about the work of early-stage science-focused companies, network and have some fun at the same time.
This month’s program will feature Phase Inc., a manufacturing hardware company developing a revolutionary 3D printing technology for microfluidics that creates more realistic biological environments. Phase’s proprietary innovation lies in its ability to 3D print microfluidic models using PDMS, the industry-standard material, in hundreds of layers and with a micro-scale degree of precision. Phase —which is backed by the NIH and NC Biotech, and partnering with Harvard Medical School, Georgia Tech, and Virginia Tech — is a graduate of the 2022 First Flight BARDA WheelsUP Accelerator. The company is headquartered in First Turn Innovations, a Cornelius-based engineering and prototyping business incubator helping entrepreneurs advance their ideas from concept to testing.
This is a hybrid event.
