August 18, 2014
Citing its potential for business and job growth, the GCEDC recently celebrated the newest tenant at the Dartmouth Regional Technology Center (DRTC) business incubator, FreshAir Sensor Corporation. Founded by recent Tuck Business School MBA grad Jack O'Toole and Dartmouth Chemistry professor Joe BelBruno, FreshAir commercializes sensor technology that detects chemical compounds in cigarette smoke while providing real estate owners of a warning and time stamp of the violation. Suitable applications for the technology include hotel rooms, rental cars, and other locations where owners do not want cigarette smoke damage.
Located at 16 Cavendish Court, Lebanon, the DRTC incubator provides space and programs for technology entrepreneurs seeking to start or growth their companies.
