Graphene Manufacturer Vorbeck Materials Receives a Top Innovator Award by the New York Venture Summit
(Nanowerk News) Graphene producer Vorbeck Materials is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a winner of the Top Innovator Award by the annual New York Venture Summit. The award recognizes cutting edge private companies driving the future of innovation. John Lettow, President of Vorbeck, has been invited by the New York Venture Summit to present the company to 450 entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate developers June 17th in New York City.
Vorbeck Materials was established in 2006 to manufacture and develop commercial applications using Vor-x™, Vorbeck's patented graphene material developed at Princeton University. In 2009, Vorbeck successfully launched Vor-ink™, a graphene-based conductive ink, the world's first graphene-based product. Vor-ink offers the printed electronics industry significant price, performance and processing advantages over existing conductive inks.
"We're honored to be recognized for our ability to convert graphene's enormous promise into real revenues for our investors," said Lettow.
