Join us on July 23 at 1:00 pm via Zoom for a Case Western Reserve University Startup Showcase featuring Edifice Analytics and Workbench in partnership with the Great Lakes Energy Institute. There will be a pitch session and discussion with Dave Gordon, CEO, Edifice Analytics & Prince Ghosh (CWR '19) and Lucas Fridman (CWR '19), Co-Founders, Workbench. They will pitch their respective startups and then open to a Q&A and general discussion format.

In 2020, Gordon joined Edifice Analytics, a service providing a new form of virtual commercial building energy audits, commercializing technology developed at CWRU. Prior to that, he founded Custom Within Reach™ from Vista Finishing to fill a need within the kitchen cabinet industry. He also is a management design consultant and works to transform organizations.

Ghosh and Fridman both graduated CWRU in 2019 and founded Workbench Technologies the same year. Workbench builds project management software for supply chain teams, digitizing a process that is often done manually. The year prior, they founded Boundary Labs to digitize factory floors, which led them to see the need that Workbench now fills.

This conversation will be facilitated by Case Western Reserve University student Shweta Mohapatra (CWR '22) who is pursuing a BA in Cognitive Science and Chemical Biology.

We will also be broadcasting this roundtable and future roundtables to LinkedIn Live on CWRU Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship's LinkedIn page on July 23 at 1 pm.
