‘Disruptive’ technology on display at community showcase | Business

Roadrunner Venture Studios is opening its doors to four crowd-favorite startups that displayed potentially “disruptive” technology at a June 22 community showcase event in Albuquerque.

The event — which attracted more than 200 scientists, innovators, investors and entrepreneurs from around New Mexico — showcased about three dozen new technologies from across the state in poster displays. And, in a science fair-like format, the inventors and startup representatives discussed their technology and business-development strategies with attendees, who then voted on those that demonstrated the most real-world impact potential.
