Darkwind Media, a tenant of our supporting member RIT Venture Creations incubator, has become the second student-initiated venture this month to be highlighted in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. Darkwind has developed a proprietary software platform that allows it to do develop interactive 3D presentations for both real-world and virtual applications.
According to the newspaper story, two next-door dorm neighbors at Rochester Institute of Technology founded the company in 2007 as an outgrowth of a student project on medical imaging, and were soon joined by three additional RIT alumni. The company currently works as a contractor but may now seek investors to develop the platform into a commercially available product. Congratulations to entrepreneurs Colin Doody, Brian Johnstone, and all your colleagues and to Venture Creations director Jerry Mahone!
