The 11th Annual Summit was held on June 25th, 2014. The summit pairs investors with entrepreneurs who can bring innovative products and services for the longevity economy to market.

“We are pleased to have had such excellent array of young companies enter our 11th Annual Business Plan Competition, coupled with an impressive panel of judges,” said Mary Furlong, CEO of Mary Furlong and Associates and Producer of the Silicon Valley Boomer Venture Summit. “The summit pairs investors with entrepreneurs who can bring innovative products and services for the longevity economy to market. Bikanta not only receives the $10,000 prize, but an opportunity to work closely with InnovateLTC’s portfolio of companies.”

InnovateLTC is located in Louisville, Kentucky, which has the largest cluster of aging care headquarters in the world. Over $50 billion in revenue reaches all 50 states, delivering care from companies like Humana, Kindred, Signature HealthCARE, Almost Family, Atria Senior Living, Pharmerica, and Trilogy Senior Living.

“This is InnovateLTC's third year as a sponsor, working in partnership with Mary Furlong & Associates. We will provide Bikanta with an opportunity to work closely with our portfolio of long term care partners to utilize our Research, Validate, Deliver platform,” said Alicia Heazlitt, Director of InnovateLTC. “Our goal is to provide emerging companies the market validation and industry access to quickly scale their company's innovative product, service or technology to market.”

"Bikanta is pleased to have had the opportunity to present at the Boomer Venture Summit. The business plan competition was the icing on the cake!” said Ambika Bumb, PhD, Founder and CEO of Bikanta. “We were thrilled to share our technology and passion for nanomedicine. Nanodiamonds extend the potential for researchers to ask questions at the molecular level, and in the long run empower the clinician to address disease at the cellular level. We plan to use the prize money towards educational materials that describe the power of nanodiamonds and nanomedicine."

Judges for the Business Plan Competition included: Brian L. Clark, UnitedHealthcare; Dean Hoang, Pinnacle Ventures; Jody Holtzman, AARP; John Hopper, Link-Age Ventures; Tom Rodgers, Cambia Health; Scott Smith, Viant Group; and Gavin Teo, Comcast Ventures.
