Science-focused startup Innovation Choice left San Francisco for Philly. While we wish we could say it were because of our growing tech scene or because of funding, it’s for a different reason: Innovation Choice founder Robert Arauz‘s girlfriend just started at Wharton.
But a relocation’s a relocation, right?
Innovation Choice aims to be a question and answer portal for scientists, dealing with “highly technical” research questions that your average search engine wouldn’t be able to answer, Arauz said. The startup, which has not launched yet, will vets the site’s users so researchers can trust the answers they get.
Arauz said he’s looking to launch in January 2013.
Arauz, 28, is a scientist by trade. He now lives in Center City and is actively seeking funding for his startup, a team of eight that all work remotely. He’s also scoping out local incubators in hopes of finding office space.-30-
