About this event

Excerpted from Exit Event Article By Jon Mareane (December 15, 2016)

The young Greensboro-based SaaS company, which made its first sale in September 2015, uses an online and mobile app-based platform to monitor and increase the efficiency of people in the manufacturing industry.

The NC IDEA grant win isn’t the first recognition of Ampogee’s potential. At the beginning of 2016, the company won first place and a spot in the New Ventures Startup Accelerator program.

Additionally, a growing customer base has given the company founders some validation. Ampogee’s app is in operation at several businesses in the southeast such as Patheon (where Lopatka previously worked as a production manager and site leader), Pine Hall Brick and Thompson Traders.

The platform is also being used and evaluated by an SC-based factory owned by Sandvik, a $142 billion company. Should its evaluation go well, Sandvik may consider expanding use of the product across other factories, says Woahn.

Given that, according to Woahn, the target market sector consists of 12.3 million manufacturing jobs and few competing products, hopes are high for this NC IDEA grant winner.
