ConSemi has developed and patented systems and processes in the production and test of the latest leadframe process with our L2S2 product. We have also patented and will be soon launching our FATcat System (Failure Analysis Tool). This system has NO competitor and our only competition is a dangerous and uncontrollable process using fuming nitric acid. ConSemi also has several other products in R&D.
Innovation Asset Group (IAG) *Runner Up*
Innovation Asset Group, Inc. (IAG) is an Oregon c-corporation formed in May of 2002. It has created a next-generation software system called DECIPHER™ that enables companies, in real-time, to track and manage the most valuable of their assets - their intellectual property (“IP”) and other intangibles, related contracts, and how it all interrelates. Most companies in our target market have no clear visibility of these critical assets and the important information around them. As a result, they are:
(1) Not effectively managing their most valuable asset base; (2) Exposed on the liability side more than necessary (3) Shipping (and paying for) products & services after contracts have expired; (4) Not collecting (or paying) royalties; (5) Using more administrative personnel than necessary; and (6) Paying more money and spending more time than necessary to roll up this information for compliance and internal reporting purposes.
We go directly at this problem with an integrated solution. Having launched in late 2004 and already with eleven customers from coast to coast and internationally, all of whom are providing excellent feedback, IAG is positioned for a major land grab in a significant market where exit transaction values are extremely interesting.

Nano Interface Technology, Inc.
Nano Interface Technology, Inc. (NITI) has developed nanotechnology-derived economical ultra-pure coatings for orthopedic and dental implants which FDA has been in quest for many years. The NIH Nanotech review panel validates NITI’s proprietary technology by stating excellent quality of product and its enormous clinical benifits. For the last 20 years, the lifespan of orthopedic and dental implants has been 10-12 years with revision rate of 17%. The ultra-pure coatings developed by the NITI will increase the lifespan of these implants from 12 years to 20 years resulting in reduced revisions. It will also reduce need of high strength painkillers. Since this material is currently used in coatings of implants, therefore implants developed using this purer material will easily get FDA approval without any clinical studies. It will be widely accepted by the surgeons because the cost of these implants will be significantly lower than the current cost of coated implants.
NITI has completed the basic research and will market the products after in vivo studies in the next 3 years. NITI will provide coatings for orthopedic implants to manufacturers for higher growth in revenue and plans to license its technology to the existing players in the dental implants business. The leading dental implants companies have already contacted NITI for the partnership. The worldwide market size of the orthopedic and dental implants is $15B per year with 15% growth rate. The growth rate of 15% will increase to 25% due to the longer life expectancy and several painkillers for arthritis are being pulled out from the market, resulting in $30B market by 2009. NITI foresees revenue of $133M by 2012 based on market shares of 1% in orthopedic and 10% in dental implants market. The reduction in the revision rate of hip and knee implants from 17% to 12% has the potential of saving $ 825M per year in the US alone.
Company Background: Nano Interface Technology, Inc. (NITI) has hit upon the holy grail of nano-biomaterials production, and has successfully synthesized molecules under highly controlled conditions for specific applications. NITI has a proprietary platform technology for manufacturing of the nanoparticles of the multi-metal ions. Currently, Company collaborates with the several researchers at the Johns Hopkins University, Naval Research Laboratory, Virginia Commonwealth University, and Eastern Michigan University.
•Received the 4th funding (Total Potential of $1.6M) for more advanced orthopedic implants (Version 2).
Elox Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Elox is a start-up company that seeks to establish a competitive edge in the field of gastroenterology conditions market segment by rapidly advancing its proprietary semi-synthetic natural products based drugs. Additionally, the Company possesses the necessary skills to produce the high quality drugs that are needed in this field.
The preliminary human trials of an Elox semi-synthetic natural product had been developed and were done on twenty patients in India. The human trials included the use of a semi-synthetic natural product as the drug to cure Hemorrhoids. These trials were based on a therapeutic combination of a semi-synthetic natural product mixed with a lubricant, such as Vaseline, which were topically administered to the patients. The 95% of the patients reported reduction of pain, bleeding and healing of Hemorrhoids after two weeks and no adverse "side effects". After a treatment of seven to eight weeks, 95% of the patients reported no Hemorrhoidal pain, bleeding, and complete wound healing.
The Company believes that this presents a substantial opportunity for the development of drugs for Hemorrhoids, for which currently there is no prescription drug in the market. The potential US domestic market is estimated at more than $1 billion. Although "preliminary human trials" carried out in India present a non-scientific data which could not be acceptable to the FDA for the Investigational New Drug Applications (IND), the company believes that chances of failure are negligible because the drug had shown excellent therapeutic profile in human-patients. The chances of toxicity are also very less because of the topical treatment of the disease.
market of more than $1 billion with no other approved prescription drugs available.
Cyclone Technologies LLLP
We have the exclusive rights to sell the technology of the Schoell Cycle Cyclone Engine. This engine is designed around the principles of external combustion to efficiently use any liquid or gaseous fuel and create more power and significantly less emissions than current gasoline or diesel powered internal combustion engines. The engine is scalable in its size and output such that it can be utilized for applications ranging from small generators, household, and lawn equipment, to medium scales addressing automotive, power boats, and light trucks, and the larger scales required in the trucking, commercial marine, offroad construction equipment, and stationary generator markets.
To date, Cyclone Technologies has completed its initial research and design of the engine, and has already successfully bench-tested single and twin cylinder engines in the smaller power range. Four six-cylinder engines are currently being assembled. Bench testing on these medium scale engines will commence within the next few months. We are well beyond the proof of concept stage.
An international patent has already been filed to protect infringement on the technology. Fourteen patents are currently being filed to protect the 'package' of individual inventions that comprise the innovative system of components that make up the Cyclone Engine.
The Cyclone team has secured an initial tier of investment, participated in major engineering trade shows, signed a contract with a manufacturing group for the rights to produce this engine for marine applications, and made marketing contacts with generator manufacturers, automobile manufacturers, and diesel engine builders.

Piccolo, a radically superior shopping search engine, finds exactly what the user wants to buy. Unlike all the other shopping search engines—-Froogle, MSN Shopping, BizRate, etc. (all of which give you long, long lists of “results”)--Piccolo only gives you what you’ve requested—and nothing else.
Piccolo has many other unique features. You can stop in the middle of a search and change directions. You can back up and add or delete features of what you’re looking for. In all cases, you can sequentially narrow down what you want, and you get exactly that result, without receiving the huge list of near-misses and outright incorrect “results” that all the other search engines provide. (If there is no exact fit, you get the nearest fit—but only from among those elements in your original request.)
