Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Emergent Technologies, Inc. is proud to announce that two of its portfolio companies, Caisson Biotech and AeonClad Coatings, were recognized as leading up-and-coming Austin startups on the 2013 Summer Austin A-List. The A-list, released last Thursday by the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and South by Southwest Interactive, is compiled with insight from venture capital, private equity and angel investors from around the country. The 19 members of the 2013 A-List represent key sectors of innovation including life sciences, business analytics, mobile and lifestyle applications. Recognition as an A-List Company is intended to increase the visibility of Austin's great regional technology startups.
Caisson Biotech is a life science company recognized for its proprietary heparosan-based drug delivery system known as HEPtuneTM that pharmaceutical companies are using to create bio-superior vehicles for improving drug performance and the quality of life for patients (visit: http://www.caissonbiotech.com). AeonClad Coatings is a materials science company recognized for its proprietary pulsed-plasma process that can modify the surface of nearly any substrate used in industrial and medical products to substantially improve performance (visit: http://www.aeonclad.com).
Representatives from the A-List companies were invited to a rooftop reception in downtown Austin to celebrate their nominations, interact with fellow A-List companies (past and present), SXSW and Austin Chamber personnel, and enjoy some live music.
“We are honored to have both Caisson and AeonClad included on this year’s A-List,” said Emergent Founder and CEO, Thomas Harlan. “Our mission is to transform game-changing technology into market driven products and we are fortunate to be in a city that so clearly values and supports entrepreneurship and innovation.”
