2 With FastForward Ties Among Those Named to BBJ’s Tech 10

 

John Cammack

Through innovation, investments and talent nurturing, Baltimore’s tech community grows stronger every day. To recognize those most instrumental in driving this change, The Baltimore Business Journal named the recipients of its second annual Tech 10 Awards, including two with ties to FastForward.

John Cammack and Sathya Elumalai were featured among a prestigious list that included tech company executives, leaders of incubators and venture capital investors.

Cammack, a FastForward mentor-in-residence, is backing several Baltimore-based tech companies like Allovue, Red Owl Analytics and ZeroFox. The ex-T. Rowe Price executive also sits on a number of boards, including those of Betamore and the Johns Hopkins student startup FactoryFour.

Sathya Elumalai

Sathya Elumalai, CEO of Multisensor Diagnostics, a FastForward startup, is developing a handheld device called MouthLab that quickly and easily gathers key vital signs. Elumalai co-founded Multisensor Diagnostics in 2015 while earning his MBA in health care management and finance at the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. In March, his company beat out a field of about five dozen to become one of four finalists in the Association of University Technology Manager’s national business plan competition.

In addition to being featured in the BBJ’s September 22 issue, the publication will celebrate the honorees with a public event on September 21. Jen Meyer, CEO of Betamore and a Tech 10 winner last year, will be the keynote speaker at the event.

Last year, the BBJ selected JHTV head Christy Wyskiel and Protenus co-founders Robert Lord and Nick Culbertson among its honorees for the inaugural Tech 10 awards. Protenus is a FastForward startup currently operating in Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood.

Incubator Company of the Year

On June 15, two startups based on Johns Hopkins technology received Incubator Company of the Year Awards at an annual event sponsored by the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) and several other organizations.

Emocha Mobile Health, a tenant in FastForward 1812 developing a mobile health platform for remote patient management, was recognized as Best Health I.T. Company. Proscia, a digital health company building cloud-based image analysis and deep learning software for pathology based at Spark in the Inner Harbor, received the first-ever award for Best Unaffiliated Company.

Judges, a cross-section of the region’s most prominent industry leaders and early-stage investors, evaluated 21 finalists based on their success in achieving their objectives. Key factors included technology or product development, intellectual property, increase in employee numbers, growth in revenue or earnings, engagement of significant customers and strategic partners, receipt of awards and grants, attraction of outside investors, innovation, self-sufficiency, impact on the region and usage of the incubator’s services.

Emocha’s win marks the fourth time in the past five years that a FastForward startup has received an Incubator Company of the Year award. Sonavex claimed the award for Best Med Tech/Life Science Company in 2016. Gemstone Biotherapeutics was named Best Life Sciences Company in 2015. Clear Guide Medical won the Life Sciences/Medical Device & Research Tool category in 2013.
