The Princeton Mercer Regional Chamber of Commerce (PMRC) selected Lambent Data for a display table at Pitch Stop IV, which occurred on February 17, 2022. Lambent's Co-founder and CEO Kirsten Hund Blair participated in the lively in-person event, which took place at the beautiful Grounds for Sculpture and attracted over 130 people, including investors, entrepreneurs, and others interested in innovation. While the event was scheduled for three hours, she and others interacted for nearly five hours, including before and after the scheduled time. The photo below shows Kirsten at the display table, with outdoor sculptures visible through the window and several paintings hung indoors also visible as reflections in the glass.
After the formal event ended, during the continuing networking, attendees were invited to walk around outdoors through the fascinating exhibit "Night Forms" with colored lights illuminating sculptures. (However, Kirsten did not do this, as she was talking with so many people indoors!) The exhibit is open during nights until April 3; ticket info and other details are here: https://www.groundsforsculpture.org/exhibitions/night-forms-dreamloop-by-klip-collective/
Twenty-four enterprises had applied to the event, with three companies chosen to present pitches and six others (including Lambent) chosen for display tables.
The winner of the pitches was Dome Audio, with its innovative bone-conduction headphones. Dome Audio was pitched by Chief Strategy Officer Tim Wright, who played in the 2014-15 season, including the Feb 2015 Super Bowl, for the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots.
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council of the PMRC plus other PMRC colleagues and the Grounds for Sculpture staff smoothly coordinated the advance planning and many details during the evening. Sponsors and prize donors included Integris, Grounds for Sculpture, TD Bank, First Bank, NJM Insurance Group, Forte Consulting, Christopher R. Kinkade, Withum, Stimulus Brand Communications, and Imbue Creative.
