Good Words About Keraderm

We've heard lots of good words about Keraderm, the VT KnowledgeWorks member company that closed a $2.5 million investment from NewVa Capital Partners

The news was covered in The Roanoke Times and we heard from Aric Bopp of the New River Valley Economic Development Alliance, and from Doug Juanarena of GenTek Ventures.

Cory Donovan, Executive Director of the NewVa Corridor Technology Council (NCTC), kindly left this comment:

Yes, things are really starting to click here in the Roanoke/Blacksburg region. All of the pieces are coming together including ideas, talent, capital, and the entrepreneurial spirit. When you consider that small companies create 80% of the new jobs in our economy, the future looks bright for the NewVa region!
