Welcome, New FAU Tech Runway Companies!

FAU Tech Runway® recently selected its largest venture class of startup and early-stage companies to participate in the business incubator/accelerator program, from a record number of participants in the FAU Tech Runway Launch Competition.

Four companies will receive a $25,000 grant, attend an intensive boot camp, engage in a rigorous mentoring program, meet potential investors, and will be provided a workspace for one year at no cost. Congratulations to these four companies:

  • Videopura LLC, is a video services company with patent-pending technologies to reduce the required bandwidth necessary for video services. 
  • Tap2Open LLC  is a secure, convenient, and easy way for residents and guests to gain access to gated communities via smart devices. Tap2Open allows residents and invited guests to enter a gated community and secured doors at the push of a button on their smart device. 
  • Ridgeback  Network Defense Inc. delivers enterprise network security by turning the tables on hackers, dynamically counter-engaging the adversary, causing them to absorb the expense of the attack and eliminating them as a threat.  
  • Hubspring Health  is an innovative software company founded by physicians that provides healthcare organizations with mission-critical content in an easily searchable platform accessible from any device or location, eliminating delays in care.
