New Building Update
We grow a little closer to moving into our brand new building every day. Our facilities team is currently working on internal build out of the space, including offices for our partner and tenant SBDC Florida, and conference rooms and other amenities for our tenants and coworkers.
On the outside of the building, the parking lot needed to be completely redone due to drainage issues the first time around. It has now been repaved and we have plans to install two electric car charging stations this summer. Several of our tenants and coworkers will be getting Teslas this summer and we expect these stations will be very popular.
We received our shipment of sound booths from Soundbox this week. They will provide acoustic isolation to keep ambient noise out and private conversations in. They’ll be perfect for phone calls, video chats, and small meetings.
We’re hoping to receive our certification of occupancy very soon, so we can begin to move operations to the new space. We can’t wait to show everyone the new and improved TechFarms, and are excited to welcome new members, host events, and continue to grow.
Starting in March, TechFarms current facilities at 7506 Holley Circle will be rented by one of our previous tenants, Mine Survival Inc. “MSI”. MSI originally started at TechFarms back in 2015 and has since grown into a very successful venture.
MSI and its sister company, ATOR Labs, now have a wide product line centered around respiratory protective devices which includes surface rebreathers, emergency ventilators, protective masks, and simulation and testing equipment such as the industry’s only ISO16900 certified breathing simulator, the Automated Breathing and Metabolic Simulator “ABMS”. The company’s ABMS system is recognized throughout the world as the world’s most advanced and accurate simulator for testing respiratory devices.
February Startup Stories Canceled
Due to the rise in recent Covid-19 infections from the omicron variant, we have decided to cancel our February Startup Stories event. We hope to return on March 2nd, at 9:00am.
Chaos Audio: Test Packaging
Chaos Audio recently received test packaging for their Stratus smart guitar pedal that is currently in development. The test packaging is an important step towards launching the product and delivering to customers and will help with ramped up marketing efforts this spring.
The team has also been hard at work finalizing and testing the hardware for the pedal and developing the software that will drive the user experience. Stratus is expected to ship this summer.
TechFarms’ Student Entrepreneur
Accepted into MIT
Student entrepreneur, Jonathan Walker, has been accepted into MIT – making him one of the very few in the nation to receive this honor. In addition to MIT, Jonathan has been offered full scholarships to several other leading universities and will have a tough decision to make this fall.
Jonathan has been on a winning streak this past year and has won numerous scientific awards including 1st place at the 2021 International Science and Engineering Fair. In the meantime, Jonathan is finishing his final year at Rutherford High School and will most likely be back at TechFarms this summer before heading off to start the next chapter of his life.
TechFarms Capital Investments:Perceptive Sensor Technologies
With the only non-intrusive inspection solution that can rapidly identify, monitor, and track the liquid contents inside pipes, tanks, or containers, Perceptive Sensor Technologies (PST) presents a massive opportunity for the oil, gas, and energy industries.

These capabilities come through a transmix pipe monitoring system, tank overfill protection, and handheld device. Use in the field has improved asset management, health and safety compliance, and fraud protection on a molecular level.
There are multiple industrial and commercial verticals that the technology can be applied to, independent of the significant government market segments. The market for accurate identification of materials including quality testing and monitoring has been established by the current large worldwide demand for laboratory testing that already exists. The ability to do this instantly on a spot inspection basis without the need to draw a sample for lab testing is an industry breakthrough. 
In addition, being able to do this in real-time and set alarms for pre-set conditions or to collect this data for later analysis under a big data scenario, would be an industry first. This provides PST with an industrial IoT application that has significant implications for both the commercial and governmental sectors.  For more information see: perceptivesensors.com.
