Digital developmental tech company wins latest TechLaunch BullPen

Neoneur, a Pennington-based company offering a digital developmental biomarker for infants, was named the winner of the Investor Award at the most recent TechLaunch BullPen pitch competition.

Kinnelon-based TechLaunch said its BullPen #19 event featured three presenting companies: Neoneur, whose reusable hardware can detect complications in feeding and respiration; Arke Aeronautics, a Glassboro-based situational intelligence platform that connects first responders to life-saving information via mobile device; and Morristown-based SwingShot, a virtual sports training platform aimed at the PGA Teaching profession.

“TechLaunch’s BullPen and mentoring was a valuable opportunity for Neoneur to sharpen our story, get feedback and answer questions from investors,” CEO Caroline Hoedemaker said in a prepared statement. “While we appreciate winning, the TechLaunch environment was equally supportive and helpful for all the entrepreneur participants.”

By winning the event, Neoneur earned a $15,000 donation of professional services from the event sponsors, Jumpstart NJ Angel Network, Tech Council Ventures, Gibbons P.C., Withum, Gearhart Law and Casabona Ventures, as well as a spot pitching to both the Jumpstart NJ Angel Network and Tech Council Ventures.

“The BullPen continues to shine as a beacon of New Jersey’s strong entrepreneurial culture and spirit,” TechLaunch founder and Managing Director Mario Casabona said in a statement. “With each passing BullPen, the panel’s winner selection is becoming an increasingly tough decision.”

The judges of the virtual event included Lorine Pendleton, angel investor and chair at Tiger 21; Steve Socolof, investor and managing partner at Tech Council Ventures; Krishnamurty Kambhampati, investor and entrepreneur partner at Clouet Capital Partners; and Joan Zief, early stage investor and managing partner at Golden Seeds.
