Sponsor Spotlight - BerryDunn

One of our first sponsors, BerryDunn has been with NSIV for over eight years, signing on in 2011. Through the years, they have assisted many NSIV member companies by providing an introductory level of pro bono accounting support. Their expert guidance at this early and critical time for our startups helped companies avoid making costly financial mistakes.

For many years, BerryDunn staff held periodic office hours at NSIV, making themselves available for consultation with members and advising NSIV as well.  

As NSIV grew, we looked to the expertise of BerryDunn when we hired them for our early Accounting Reviews and later for Accounting Audits.

Assurance, Tax, Consulting - BerryDunn has offices in in four New England states and AZ and WV. They are a member of the Top 100 accounting firms and the largest in northern New England. They serve  a wide array of clients from town, local, and state governments to healthcare, not-for-profit, higher education, commercial, financial services, high tech, and more.

Thank you BerryDunn!


Keeping up with NSIV

Funny meeting you here... running this year's Chicago Marathon were Radical Plastics CEO, Kristin Taylor and NSIV's Tom Kinneman. Kristin ran her first Chicago in 2006 and, returning 13 later, said it was again a wonderful day! Tom was on his game for sure, running his first Chicago and finishing in 2nd Place in his age group! Congrats to both for their individual achievements! In truth, they didn't know they had each run the race until returning to NSIV after the Columbus Day weekend.

Yankee ingenuity at work: NSIV Lab Manager Tony Funicella responded to Radical Plastics' need for an air circulating oven (think convection oven) by retrofitting a small oven, adding a tube, a bored rubber bung from the UK, and an air pump.

And now samples are cooking nicely with their need for oxygen satisfied! Pictured here are Tony and Radical Plastics CEO, Kristin Taylor.


What's Happening Around the North Shore & Beyond

Did you know that the North Shore now has a new contract manufacturing facility? Gloucester Bioprocessing Center (GBC) officially launched its operations this month in Blackburn Industrial Park. According to BiofuelsDigest contributor Mark Warner in his latest article, the options are scarce in the US but expanding elsewhere around the world.

"Contract manufacturing is still the best route for many early stage biotechnology ventures...", according to Warner.

We are so fortunate to have GBC right in the neighborhood. NSIV's COO, Tom Kinneman and Director of Mentoring, Trish Fleming recently stopped in Gloucester for a tour.

NSTC is beginning a new Leadership Roundtable Program, a joint venture with North Shore InnoVentures and funding from the Mass Technology Collaborative. It will be a facilitated peer-to-peer (P2P) leadership program aimed at technology executives with company annual revenues of at least $1 million. Monthly confidential sessions will address critical business and organizational issues in order to overcome challenges and achieve long-term strategic goals. Find complete information here about this exciting opportunity starting November 14th, plus forms for inquiries and applications. 

The Enterprise Center at Salem State University welcomes business owners and entrepreneurs of all experience levels to come in and learn something new. The goal of The Enterprise Center is to provide you with education, training, and networking opportunities, to help your business grow and succeed.
