The AIC, which is powered by the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA), awards the most money in the United States for a technology commercialization challenge – up to $250,000 per company for a total of $3 million annually.

Companies may receive up to $250,000 to invest in their businesses if they achieve certain milestones within a 12-month period. During the rigorous evaluation process, a panel of expert judges assess each company’s marketing strategy, technology potential, management team and overall economic impact. For the Fall 2015 AIC, over 130 applications were submitted by companies from five states and numerous industries, including IT-Software, Bio and Life Sciences and Cleantech/Renewable Energy.

gLOVE Treat eliminates the hassle and mess with its sensible design. After just two minutes in a conventional microwave, gLOVE Treat’s thermochromatic indicator alerts users when the paraffin wax is at a safe temperature to use. Users wear the gloves or boots, secured with a fabric fastener, for just 15 minutes, and the treatment is complete. Each pair of gLOVE Treat gloves and boots can be used up to four times.

gLOVE Treat recently earned a coveted spot on O, The Oprah Magazine’s acclaimed O List, a hand-selected compilation of Oprah Winfrey’s favorite consumer products and gift items, making its debut in the January 2016 issue.
