At ChronoWake, we strive to remain on the cutting-edge. We openly embrace technological advances that improve product quality and efficiency, minimize power consumption, reduce impact on the environment, or otherwise enhance our company and society. Nanotechnology promises many improvements over existing technology. Ryan Goldstein, President/CEO, wrote a detailed overview of the current state of nanotechnology in the wireless realm. As it becomes economically feasible, we plan to implement such technology into our products.
Based on the current research and development state of ChronoWake, the team decided that reapplication to Phase I in the Wharton Venture Initiation Program is the best course of action. We are proud to announce that ChronoWake has been successfully accepted to continue in Wharton VIP as a Phase I venture. This extends the guidance and support through this program up through May 2009, at which time another reapplication is required. From the acceptance letter:
We have enjoyed working with you in the Wharton Venture Initiation Program. We are delighted to grant your request to remain in Phase I of the program for the Spring semester.
