Therma-HEXX and Aboundi to Make Pitches at High Tech Council Forum
Published Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Two New Hampshire companies, Therma-HEXX and Aboundi, Inc, will be featured at the next NH High Technology Council Entrepreneur Forum on Wednesday, October 17. The companies present their products to a panel of experts and live audience to gain feedback and insight on marketability and finance strategies. The event will be held at the FIRST headquarters located at 200 Bedford Street, Manchester, from 5:20 pm to 8:30 pm.
Therma-HEXX was founded in 2011 by Robert and Susan Barmore in Portsmouth, and Aboundi, Inc. was founded in 2005 by Hong & Heli Yu and is based in Nashua.

The NH High Tech Council (NHHTC) produces a series of educational programs to support entrepreneurship and provide high-level resources to rapidly growing companies. At the Entrepreneur Forum, companies present their business challenges to a panel of industry experts, and receive board-level and executive advice on how best to address their challenges, all in front of a live audience.
The Forum includes a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres and networking opportunities, as well as a “sky dive pitch” from one or two early stage companies or a non-profit or student-driven entity that focuses on a specific challenge or opportunity they are facing. The cost for the event is only $25 for NHHTC members, $30 for non-members, and only $10 for students. Individuals can register at nhhtc.org.

Therma-HEXX specializes in the creation of green building products that improves the way to heat and cool our environments inside and out. ThermaPAVER collects solar energy to heat water while cooling paver surfaces in the summer and melts snow on pavers using geothermal or waste heat energy. ThermaCEILING are radiant heating and cooling panels that will provide a highly efficient way to heat and cool spaces using a conventional suspended ceiling system.
Aboundi Inc. has taken Broadband over the Power Line technology into the commercial and industrial markets by providing cost effective, commercially advanced, networking deployment solutions. Incorporating existing legacy copper wiring as networking infrastructure within buildings, Aboundi provides very cost effective, earth friendly and powerful network solutions.

The NHHTC holds three Entrepreneur Forums per year where attendees discover how to present a plan to potential investors or gain valuable feedback on specific topics. These events are designed to attract attendees that include entrepreneurs who are developing a business idea or have an interest in the subject matter of the presenters, members of the financial and investment community, and students.
Each of the presenting companies is given 15 minutes to present its business plan and receive feedback from a panel of experts and the audience. Typically, panelists include at least one investor (angel, venture capitalist, corporate investor, or financial institution) appropriate for the stage of the company and the amount of capital sought. Other panelists are chosen for their familiarity with the industry, technology, market place or strategic issues being addressed.
The panel acts as venture advisors for an evening and provides feedback and potential solutions to challenges faced by entrepreneurial companies based on their own professional experiences and expertise. These business challenges are those encountered by most entrepreneurial companies - including financial, marketing and sales, technology, operations, management, growth, diversification, and more.
To learn more about the event, go to www.nhhtc.org or call 603.935-8951. Attendance is limited given space constraints.
