WIN Adds New Partners to Its Growing Roster
The BCW’s Westchester Innovation Network (WIN) initiative to propel innovation forward as the foundation for the future of economic growth in Westchester, has added three new partners that have been matched with local collaborators to test new products. The new WIN partners are Radish Health Inc.; Rainbow International Restoration of Westchester; and Kuponya Innovations. The additions bring WIN’s roster of partners to 12.
Radish Health is a healthcare company that helps organizations stay healthy by providing convenient medical services directly to employees, including primary care, mental health, and nutritional coaching. Radish Health’s services include medical care, talk therapy, nutrition consultations and physical training consultations to build exercise plans. Radish Health will partner with the BCW.
The BCW is finalizing details for Rainbow International Restoration of Westchester to work with the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers to test its LaserClean technology, a green innovation that removes fire/soot damage from buildings’ exteriors without the use of dangerous chemicals. Most recently, the LaserClean technology was successfully used to restore the exterior at 7 Pines Tower in Yonkers, which suffered a serious fire last year.
Kuponya Innovations is an early-stage start-up focused on developing new construction materials from natural, sustainable sources. The company’s current research and development focus is on finding applications for industrial hemp, one of nature’s fastest-growing plants. Kuponya is investigating how industrial hemp can be used as insulation material. Kuponya will partner with Murphy Brothers Contracting to develop its insulation product.
“Companies with new services are eager to partner with organizations willing to help innovators test their concepts. WIN is a critical facilitator in terms of helping innovators find these essential market collaborators,” said BCW President and CEO Marsha Gordon. Launched in December, WIN focuses on embracing innovative new companies from Westchester County across the U.S. and internationally to learn and co-create with them.
