Fort Worth, TX (Vocus) April 14, 2010
TECH Fort Worth recently announced that OxySure has been named as a finalist in the Health category for its second annual IMPACT awards. The Ft. Worth Business and Technology Incubator’s IMPACT Awards recognize new companies that will have a significant impact on the environment, community or health by bringing new technologies to market and the program is used to raise funds to support business incubation programs for technology-based entrepreneurs.
OxySure was selected for the IMPACT awards because it has developed a unique platform technology that creates medically pure oxygen on demand from two dry, inert proprietary powders and eliminates the need for traditional tanks, storage, maintenance, testing and training. Judging criteria included: (i) the potential global impact of the company - the impact should be both far-reaching and significant; (ii) the potential benefits to be achieved for the greatest number of people, as well as the company’s ability to make it happen; and (iii) the product or service should be new and innovative.
“We are honored to have been selected as a finalist for this prestigious award. This recognition further demonstrates the positive effect that OxySure has had in our community to make the emergency application of oxygen better, safer and less expensive,” said Julian Ross, CEO of OxySure Systems, Inc.
The awards luncheon is May 12 at the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom at Texas Christian University, and the keynote speaker at the event will be Larry O'Donnell, the CEO of Waste Management who was featured on the new hit television series Undercover CEO.
