Technology for the competitive swimming industry is the first product to be commercialized through Trine University’s Innovation One incubator. New York-based Swimming Reaction Lights LLC produces lights to be used as starting devices to signal swimmers during competition.
The school says the company has moved its production from Newark, New York to Trine’s main campus. The company was founded by Nick Santino, a 1965 graduate of Trine, which was then called Tri-State. Trine student Nathaniel Scroggins, an Innovation One intern, helped refine the original prototype and will oversee operations of the business on the Angola campus.
Trine says the Innovation One incubator provides local businesses and entrepreneurs services including business plan development, marketing strategies and connections to potential investors.
