Owlstone Nanotech Wins Coveted Cambridge Phenomenon Award 2010
(Nanowerk News) Owlstone, Inc. has won the coveted and prestigious Cambridge Phenomenon Award 2010 at the 50th Anniversary of The Cambridge Phenomenon Conference "Future Starts Here". Owlstone was voted Cambridge's most exciting company for the future in its field by delegates of the conference.
In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of The Cambridge Phenomenon and hosted in partnership with Microsoft Research, ARM and Price Bailey, the conference drew on the opinions of some 300 high profile business and technology participants to identify winners from a shortlist of companies preselected by a panel of expert judges with backgrounds in investment, multinational corporations and government. In its 50 year history, Cambridge Phenomenon has been the catalyst for huge growth in more than 1,400 companies, including billion dollar successes such as ARM, Autonomy, Aveva, Cambridge Antibody Technologies, Cambridge Silicon Radio, Solexa and Virata.
In a letter to Owlstone shareholders, Bret Bader, CEO of Owlstone, commented, "We are delighted to win this significant award, not least because the judging panel was made up of such a large number of influential and experienced people from a variety of backgrounds. Although right now we are heavily involved in product development within the military, security and food industries, we consider this external validation of our future potential to be highly encouraging."
