InSITE Alumni Company, Quartzy, was the recent winner of a $50,000 seed investment at Washington University’s Olin Cup business plan competition. We worked with Quartzy in the Spring of 2009, and they had a great team and a terrific product.
Quartzy provides online lab inventory management for life-scientists, making it easier for scientists and labs to share their reagents (expensive chemicals). The company was founded by Adam Regelmann, a MD and PhD from Columbia, Meena George, a PhD in Neuroscience from Columbia, and Jayant Kulkarni, a PhD in Engineering from Cornell.
