The FabNet Grant was invaluable to help lift our project from concept to start-up, and we would not have had the same experience as a business and company without the support of the BFTP community. Thank you!
- Lorenzo Albala, MD (Circalux Inc. Founder and CEO)
Having a grant of money meant so much to me. The staff at NexFab were so knowledgeable, helpful, & encouraging, but it also takes money to make an invention go forward. When I got the Ben Franklin award, I knew Philadelphia was the place to make innovation happen.

As an unexpected benefit, I have discovered that helping other CEOs with the core issues they face - and hearing the input of fellow mentors - also provides me with valuable perspective I can come back and utilize in the Company I lead.
