A cosmetics marketer, compensation consultant and electronic research and development firm are among the first three graduates of a business incubator.
The university and area business leaders will recognize the three firms with certificates at an event on March 27 in the York Road offices of TowsonGlobal. The incubator program provides office space, counseling, mentoring and other services to start-ups. Businesses "graduate" from the incubator by meeting certain revenue, funding or staffing targets.
More on the three firms and their owners, from a Towson University press release:
Linda Seidel and Estelle Meister—Transcending Cosmetics. Transcending Cosmetics was founded to market their proprietary product, Natural Cover, to makeup professionals and medical practitioners nationally and internationally. Seidel is a pioneer in the corrective/camouflage makeup field who developed her own formulation when she found that no other product would adequately perform for her clients.
David Ryan and Jacques Dompier—Chesapeake Compensation Solutions. Chesapeake Compensation Solutions is a boutique consultancy of compensation experts with broad experience in assisting a diverse mix of publicly and privately held companies and organizations in solving the challenges they face in attracting, retaining, and motivating key talent.
Adam Nepp and Scott Wohler—NeWo Technologies. NeWo is an electronic product development firm that brings wholesale R&D to the masses, specializing in “concept to prototype” design.
