New Ventures BC Competition narrows down their 2010 field

by Rob Lewis | Startups

Earlier today New Ventures BC announced a portion of the companies that will make it through to Round 3.

We’ve had a slight change of plans, but that’s a good thing overall. We had planned on advancing the Top 15 competitors to Round 3 automatically with the next 25 companies being assigned temporary mentors and pitching in-person on June 16th for a chance to advance.

But based on the scores, we’re advancing 16 companies automatically to Round 3 and giving 27 companies the opportunity to pitch to get into Round 3.  Of the 27 companies pitching, 9 will be selected to move on to Round 3.

The 16 companies that are advancing to Round 3 are:

  1. CarrotLines
  2. Jostle Corporation
  3. Locarna Systems, Inc.
  4. Lumira Technologies
  5. MedVoxel
  6. MineSense
  7. Novel Resonant Cavity Sensors
  8. Purion
  9. Purpose Wireless Ltd.
  10. Quadrogen Power Systems, Inc.
  12. Smart Antenna
  13., Social Networking Discovery Engine
  14. Sole Gear BioMaterials Inc.
  15. StressMarq Biosciences Inc.
  16. Weddingful

Look for the remaining nine to make the Top 25 to be announced later in June.
