Eosera, Inc, a biotechnology company specializing in innovative ear care products, announced that it has been named a winner of the 2017 Tech Fort Worth IMPACT Awards, a competition in which four Fort Worth, Texas startups are selected as winners because they have made an impact in the local community. The companies are said to have the potential for global impact and have a plan as to how that impact will be reached. TechFW is a nonprofit organization and business incubator. The organization identifies entrepreneurs and startup companies with technologies that have a high potential for success in the marketplace.
“We are honored and grateful to TechFW for this recognition,” said Elyse Stoltz Dickerson, co-founder and CEO of Eosera. “We thank them for believing in us from the start. Eosera was founded to heal humans through innovative healthcare products that address underserved medical needs. We operate by putting purpose before profits and are proud to be one of the pioneering companies in Conscious Capitalism.”
“Elyse and Joe have surpassed our expectations with their company’s progress and first product, an advanced health technology that sold out on Amazon in a month, and is already available at CVS stores nationwide,” said TechFW Executive Director Darlene Boudreaux. “Eosera is now expanding capabilities to bring manufacturing in-house, right here in Fort Worth.”
Eosera’s first product, Earwax MD™, is a patent-pending topical drop that uses a dual-action technology to dissolve impacted earwax. “We discovered that doctors rank impacted earwax as one of their highest unmet medical needs and worked to come up with a solution,” said Joe Griffin, Eosera co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer.
