Eosera among four technology companies recognized for strong community, global impact
Fort Worth, TX, October 17, 2017 – Eosera, Inc, a leading biotechnology company specializing in innovative ear care products, announced today that it has been named a winner of the 2017 Tech Fort Worth IMPACT Awards, a competition in which four Fort Worth startups are selected as winners because they make an impact in the local community. The companies have the potential for a global impact and have a plan on how that global impact will be reached.
“We are honored and grateful to TechFW for this recognition. We thank them for believing in us from the start. Eosera was founded to heal humans through innovative healthcare products that address underserved medical needs. We operate by putting purpose before profits and are proud to be one of the pioneering companies in Conscious Capitalism, ” said Elyse Stoltz Dickerson, Co-founder & CEO.
“Elyse and Joe have surpassed our expectations with their company’s progress and first product, an advanced health technology that sold out on Amazon in a month, and is already available at CVS stores nationwide. Eosera is now expanding capabilities to bring manufacturing in house, right here in Fort Worth,” said TechFW Executive Director Darlene Boudreaux.
Eosera’s first product, Earwax MD™, is a novel, patent-pending topical drop that uses a dual-action technology to dissolve impacted earwax quickly and the first topical earwax treatment innovation in decades. “We discovered that doctors rank impacted earwax as one of their highest unmet medical needs and worked to come up with a solution,” said Joe Griffin, Co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer.
The ninth annual TechFW IMPACT Awards Luncheon, which recognizes and celebrates the global impact of emerging technologies, will be held on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at Texas Christian University. Comerica Bank is the Presenting Sponsor.
The luncheon is a celebration of clients and graduates of TechFW programs, and portfolio companies of Cowtown Angels, a program of TechFW that brings together independent angel investors and early-stage companies needing capital. The four emerging technology companies will be recognized based on the TechFW Board’s belief that they have the potential to impact our world. Other winners include Aeroblaze Laboratory, Exact Diagnostics and Go Vivid.
