Eric Mayer is headed to China next month.  Tom Ballard, Chief Alliance Officer, PYA has recently had a chat with Eric, CEO of EDP Biotech.  This month we are excited to report that EDP Biotech has been invited to the InnoSTARS Competition Semi-Final fro Biomedicine & Medical Device Group event on June 14 -15 in Suzhou China.

Head over to Teknovations.biz for the full story.

The invitation came after Mayer participated in one of seven regional competitions around the country hosted by InnoSTARS. He traveled to Atlanta; the other locations were Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, San Francisco, and Seattle.

“I learned about the regional opportunity from Elizabeth (Rowland) of the TN-China Network,” Mayer said. “I did not think we would even qualify.”

Not only did EDP BioTech make the regional, but it so impressed the judges that Mayer received the invitation to compete against about 20 other semi-finalists in the biomedicine and medical device category. Those companies will be coming from the other six U.S. cities and 11 Chinese regional competitions.
