Digest #316

I ran into Chris Bley last week on the day his company, Rope Partner, an international leader in wind turbine blade repair and maintenance, was acquired. The scoop is below. (Just as a reminder, another one of Bley's companies, InspecTools, was acquired just 15 months ago.)

Lou Pambianco, Startup Sandbox CEO, has started producing a series of video interviews with some of the key people behind the nascent companies in the bioscience incubator. This week, we share two such video interviews. You already know that UCSC's Genomics Institute and Baskin School of Engineering have put Santa Cruz on the map as a world-class hub for genomics/biosciences. Startup Sandbox provides bioscience entrepreneurs with an off-campus incubator space to launch their companies and productize their research.

As usual, there's much more. Scroll down and see what else is up.
