Neuright Wins $25,000 Prize in Maine Entrepreneur Event Neuright won one of two top prizes in the Top Gun Showcase, a tournament-style event where participants pitch their business idea for a shot at winning cash prizes. Neuright CEO Magdalena Blaszkiewicz, a UMaine doctoral candidate, made the case for the company’s development of a “theragnostic platform” that will provide reliable, early diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy and deliver therapeutic and drug treatments. As a result, Neuright won one of two $25,000 awards for their pitch. Top Gun is a three-month entrepreneurial training program developed by the Maine Center for Entrepreneurs (MCE). More than 40 entrepreneurs went through the program in 2019. The Showcase event featured two finalists from each of the regional pitch-off events held in Portland, Bangor, Lewiston/Auburn, Waterville, and Rockland. Two $25,000 cash prizes were up for grabs, one provided by the Maine Technology Institute and the other by the David Evans Shaw Family Foundation. Past winners include MyBodyModel, Thrivant Health in 2017, Revolution Research in 2016, and Rapport in 2015. See Neuright’s winning pitch here. https://youtu.be/gosjrUtvAYg
