Welcome to ThermApparel’s first Newsletter! Things are always changing and updating with us so we will feature all our greatest updates in this monthly newsletter. Make sure to follow our blog or sign up for our mailing list to continually receive The Coolest News(letter)!
First, we are very happy to announce that we have partnered with Nazareth College to conduct clinical testing of our products. Nazareth College has a wonderful physical therapy department that has agreed to conduct testing of our products on volunteers in their MS Clinic and Neuromuscular Clinic. Ideally, we would begin testing at Nazareth this fall but that largely depends on our ability to raise funds to order our initial 25 prototypes by the end of this month.
Speaking of manufacturing, we have partnered with FieldTex to sew and manufacture our products! FieldTex is a local manufacturer with impressive experience in soft goods for the fabrication of hand and travel bags. They have since evolved to take on products from the health care industry, from first aid kits to defibrillator vests. We look forward to working with them not only for their knowledge and experience in the area but also for their dedication and commitment to employ and manufacture right here in Rochester.
We are very excited to be a finalist for Digital Rochester’s GREAT Awards. ThermApparel was nominated for the Student Achievement category back in June. The annual Digital Rochester GREAT Awards receive many nominations and applications for each category so we’re grateful to have been selected as a finalist. Come see us on the Awards night at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center!
We have also been accepted into High Tech Rochester’s TEN Boot Camp, an intensive nine-day entrepreneurship lecture and workshop series that takes place over 4 months. High Tech Rochester has hosted twenty TEN Boot Camps over the years and has admitted ThermApparel into Class XXI after our success with Summer Start. We believe it is important to continue educating ourselves in the business and marketing world since we have no traditional education or experience in those realms. As such, we are grateful for this opportunity!
That wraps up this month, see you in October!
