Panel Presentation Featuring:

Bill Rhatigan, president of WERC-2, Bourne
Jim Fox, CEO of SG Software Group, Sandwich
Elaine Martino, ANEW Photographic Art and Restorations, Bourne

What do a restoration artist, a company that turns garbage into cleaner “coal” to produce energy, and an enterprise that helps check food safety transport all have in common?  They are all Cape Cod-based ventures using science, technology and engineering to address real world needs. WERC-2, SG Software Group and ANEW Photographic Art & Restorations will be featured for CCTC’s third annual “Entrepreneur’s Roundtable.”

WERC-2, Inc. (also called Eco-Tac) of Bourne is launching a solid biomass coal substitute product made from waste material. Bill Rhatigan, president, will discuss the environmental and economic benefits of the product which can be burned as effectively as coal but with less environmental impact.  The company expects to have multiple plants in the U.S. and abroad to make and distribute the product.

SG Software Group of Sandwich has on-line software that enhances employee and job site safety. CEO Jim Fox will speak about his company’s product in use in food and employee safety, transportation, and other markets.  The company also operates “virtually” with its management and staff being located in different places domestically and internationally, and collaborating via new technologies.

ANEW Photographic Art and Restorations, also of Bourne as well as Danvers, MA, restores damaged photographs and documents to first quality images, in part utilizing computer technology. Elaine Martino, who has won national awards for her work, will discuss her venture’s work in restoring family and historical photos and documents in part using graphics software blended with personal artistry and research.  But beyond her “business story” is a message to entrepreneurs on “following one’s passion” and as much what not to do as well as to do, a true entrepreneurial tale.
