The Bartron Medical Imaging, Inc. team and I were honored to have won the Incubator of the Year Award in 2011.  It helped validate all the hard work entailed in commercializing NASA technology into Bartron’s commercial product, the MED-SEG™.  This highly recognized award from our own state partners helped open some important doors for us in the public and private sector.  I cannot say enough about the help received from Charlotte Ducksworth and her team who nominated us for this award and aided us on many levels through this journey. -Fitz G. Walker, Jr. Pres/CEO, Bartron Medical Imaging, Inc.

Winning the award was a thrill for us at UR Solar Power and provided us with a higher business profile locally. To be part of the  Incubator center at FITCI during our start-up was a great decision on our part as they helped us concentrate on developing our business at a crucial time rather than being overly distracted by administration. -Seamas Kenny, President, UR Solar Power LLC

Meridian BioGroup was honored simply to have been a finalist in the category of Best Technology Professional Services Company in 2012.  When we won the award at last June's ceremony in Baltimore, we really did not expect the kind of response and recognition we received.  Colleagues, clients, business associates, friends, and family began reaching out to congratulate Meridian and our employees.  We pride ourselves on being professional, ethical, and acting with integrity in our business dealings with clients, as well as in our relationships with our employees.  To have been chosen as Best Technology Professional Services Company by such a distinguished selection committee of industry leaders and to have won against dynamic, entrepreneurial companies competing in the same category validates our approach to conducting business.   We are proud to be associated with The Maryland Technology Development Corporation, McGladrey, Saul Ewing, and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development and applaud their efforts to recognize small technology companies in Maryland. -Tom Blake & Alison Demarest, Principals, Meridian BioGroup LLC
