OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc. Selected to Pitch at the 2010 WBTshowcase

ARLINGTON, Texas, March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc. is among the over 100 companies and technology innovators from across the nation and around the world that will compete for top honors at the WBT2010, March 16-17 in Arlington-DFW, Texas.


OrthoAccel's AcceleDent System, an acceleration device to enhance orthodontics, will be rigorously prepped by WBTshowcase commercialization experts to present to participants including venture capitalists and Fortune 1000 licensees. Over 500 professionals attended last year's event.

"The conventional wisdom for venture capital is that a down economy can be a great time to invest," said Paul Huleatt, WBTshowcase CEO. "The pace of new innovations accelerates, the best deals rise quickly to the top and sophisticated investors receive great value for their money."

According to Mr. Huleatt, one in three WBTshowcase presenters goes on to secure venture funding, license their technology, or sell their IP outright, representing over $450 million raised to date.

Michael Lowe, CEO of OrthoAccel, commented, "We are committed to building the AcceleDent brand around the customer above all else." Michael Kaufman, VP Business Development and Marketing for OrthoAccel remarked, "Introducing a new product category will come with many challenges; launching innovation always does. An exciting benefit of AcceleDent is that it can be used to enhance orthodontic treatment of any approach, regardless of the type of appliance or profile of patient."

Mr. Huleatt highlighted that the companies groomed to present at the WBTshowcase leave with new knowledge and contacts to take their technologies to the market and beyond.

OrthoAccel is nearing conclusion of another US clinical trial at the UT Health Science Center in San Antonio with an anticipated completion date during the first half of 2010.
