We Love Tech Jam! Our growing company, Biocogniv, leverages artificial intelligence to tackle sepsis, the leading cause of in-hospital death in the United States, as well as other acute conditions before they become irreversible. Our offices are in Burlington’s Hula coworking campus, and when we found out the 2021 Vermont Tech Jam was happening here, we knew we had to participate.
Exhibiting at the Tech Jam paid off. We were fortunate to meet Kylin Willis, a biomedical engineering student from the University of Vermont, who stopped by our office to learn about Biocogniv. Not long after, she started as an intern and is now part of our full-time staff. We are thrilled to have her on the team and glad we were able to keep a recent-graduate-turnedyoung-professional in Vermont.

plane. She also happened to have a house in Vermont. The two met up the next time Rothblatt was in the state, and she became Beta’s first customer. Their connection launched the company on a journey that has since brought hundreds of jobs and millions of investment dollars into the state, from entities including Amazon’s Climate Pledge Fund. Headquartered at the Burlington International Airport, Beta is now building a massive production facility off Route 2 in South Burlington and recently announced plans to take over a former battery plant in St. Albans. Both facilities will bring many more jobs to the area. At last year’s Tech Jam, Clark and Rothblatt shared the story of how they met. You can see their entire conversation with Seven Days writer Chelsea Edgar at techjamvt.com. This year’s keynote presentation, also moderated by Edgar, features a similarly exciting startup story. Edgar will interview University of Vermont engineering grad Sarah Kalil, CEO of CoreMap, a growing med-tech company that spun out of decades of research by UVM Medical Center cardiologist Dr. Peter

inding a job these days is often an online affair. Candidates study corporate websites to learn about open positions. Employers post opportunities on job boards — including Seven Days Jobs — and accept applications through web portals. That process might be efficient, but it’s no substitute for face-to-face conversations with actual human beings. If you want to interact with the people behind the screens, come to the 2022 Vermont Tech Jam on Saturday, October 22, at Hula. This free annual job fair and tech expo encourages people to step away from their standing desks and into the kind of conversations that create and sustain our vibrant tech ecosystem. Spontaneous chats can yield surprising insights, connections and results — from job offers to funding commitments. A chance meeting is how Vermont-based Beta Technologies got off the ground; the company is racing to pioneer electric aviation. Founder and CEO Kyle Clark met Martine Rothblatt in 2017, at an event in Philadelphia. Rothblatt, the inventor of Sirius Satellite Radio and CEO of United Therapeutics, was impressed by Clark’s vision for an elegant, battery-powered

Our Hosts at Hula
A busy hub for Vermont businesses
nnovation is all over the venue that hosts the Vermont Tech Jam. Hula occupies the 15-acre lakefront property that formerly housed the Blodgett Oven factory, located off Lakeside Avenue in Burlington’s South End. The oven factory has since moved to Essex, and Hula is a busy hub for Vermont businesses, remote workers and events; Hula is one of the Tech Jam’s presenting sponsors. Palm trees and an abundance of natural light enliven the former factory’s Building 50. And the glass offices inside are
teeming with people: They’re designing websites accessible for all, building battery-powered aircraft and using artificial intelligence to improve patient health in hospitals around the country. Hula is also home to a venture capital fund that’s investing local dollars into some of these growing companies. The Tech Jam is your chance to visit with Hula tenants, and the other exhibitors, and to be inspired by the space and the energy contained within it.

The other presenting sponsor of this year’s Tech Jam is semiconductor solutions provider Marvell, a global firm with 6,500 employees worldwide. Marvell arrived in Vermont in 2019, after acquiring Avera, a company that was once part of GlobalFoundries. Burlington workplace services manager Harriet Matthews explained that Marvell employs an “essential” team of 200 based at the Innovation Center down the street from Hula — it’s the third largest Marvell site in the U.S. Marvell’s Burlington group designs semiconductors — in particular, specific chips for specific purposes, including for automotive use and in data centers and cellphone towers. Marvell exhibited at the Tech Jam in 2021 and decided to sponsor this one. "Networking and partnerships are always a good thing," Matthews noted. The fast-growing company currently has 26 open positions in Burlington, for entry-level design and verification engineers and more senior-level roles. Plus, interns! Find a full list at marvell.com, and stop by the Marvell booth at the Tech Jam to chat with recruiters. "It's a Silicon Valley company in Vermont," Matthew said. “It's a fantastic company to work for."

trial fibrillation, more commonly known as A-fib or AF, is a heart condition marked by a rapid and irregular heartbeat. If untreated, it puts people who have it at increased risk of heart failure or having a stroke. Most of us know someone affected by AF — tens of millions of people around the globe suffer from it. U.S. Senate candidate John Fetterman in Pennsylvania, the one who had a stroke days before the June primary? He’s living with AF. The condition is caused by misfiring electrical signals in the heart. Doctors can treat it with

The Heart of Collaboration With CoreMap CEO Sarah Kalil and Boston Scientific CofounderJohn Abele a procedure called ablation, which can disrupt and normalize the signals — but only if they know which area of the heart to target. That can be frustratingly difficult to determine. Vermont-based med-tech startup CoreMap aims to make it easier. Its promising proprietary mapping technology could offer a way of visualizing A-fib, which would help doctors “see” AF and target treatment. CoreMap’s technology has been decades in the making. It’s based on the research of UVM Medical Center cardiologist Peter Spector. Experts in the field who’ve assessed its potential have described it as “a quantum leap” in the treatment of patients with AF. To make that vision a reality, Spector cofounded a med-tech startup, CoreMap, with CEO Sarah Kalil. A native Vermonter and UVM engineering grad with a law degree from Seton Hall University School of Law, Kalil has held leadership positions in numerous med-tech companies, mostly out of state. In 2017, she returned to Vermont
to take on the challenge of turning Spector’s research into an approved medical device that could have a positive impact on the millions of people affected by AF. Since then, the company has raised $33 million toward achieving its goal. Read more about Kalil and CoreMap in Chelsea Edgar’s story “Tough AF: CoreMap CEO Sarah Kalil is building a better way to treat atrial fibrillation,” in this week’s Seven Days. If CoreMap is able to grow in Vermont, the company could have a significant impact on the state’s economy. CoreMap’s analysis indicates that making even four percent more AF sufferers eligible for effective treatment could bring the company $1.4 billion in product revenue. To do that, CoreMap must first navigate a complicated regulatory landscape. For help in that process, Kalil turned to another collaborator — a Shelburne resident who’d been through it all before: inventor, investor and philanthropist John Abele.
If CoreMap is able to grow in Vermont, the company could have a significant impact on the state’s economy. In 1979, Abele famously cofounded medical device company Boston Scientific, driven by a conviction that medical interventions could be less invasive and more accessible. The company was one of the early manufacturers of ablation catheters — one of thousands of products it’s developed that now affect the lives of millions. A recipient of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Gold Medal Award, the group’s highest honor, Abele, who initially earned a degree in
physics and philosophy at Amherst College, has received honorary degrees from several universities, including UVM. He’s renowned for his generosity. In 1997, Abele established the Argosy Foundation. Through it, he and his family have given away more than $100 million to organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club, the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Center for Biological Diversity, and local nonprofits, including COTS and Shelburne Farms. Abele is also a champion of FIRST Robotics. He served as the U.S. chair of the organization from 2002 to 2010 and has supported FIRST teams in Vermont — including through a new, multi-year $375,000 grant. FIRST’s impact on local kids is the subject of Alison Novak’s story, “Machines With a Mission,” in this week’s Seven Days. Writer Chelsea Edgar will moderate a conversation between Abele and Kalil at 4 p.m. on Saturday, followed by a reception with light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar.
