Newsflash: The Association of University Technology Managers met in Hollywood, Fla., and had its own Final Four last week.
All of the finalists of the conference’s pitch competition had a common bond: They each had ties to Maryland universities such as Johns Hopkins and University of Maryland. All four also received funding from TEDCO’s Maryland Innovation Initiative.
Lifesprout was named the winner. The Johns Hopkins startup is developing a soft tissue filler that can be used in plastic surgery. The big check was for $10,000.

The other finalists included:
GripBoost, the University of Maryland-College Park spinout that makes a quick-drying gel for football gloves.
Mouthlab, a JHU spinout making a device that can monitor patients with chronic disease at home via vitals taken through the mouth.

“With four MII companies in the finals, and one winner, this demonstrates that great things happen when the universities, faculty entrepreneurs and economic development work together,” said Jennifer Hammaker, Maryland Innovation Initiative Director at TEDCO.-30-
