Gilbert, AZ, May 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Local businesswoman and small business advocate, Wendy Jameson, CEO and co-founder of Colnatec, has been selected to be one of 100 delegates from the United States for the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit hosted by President Barack Obama and held at Stanford University, June 21-24.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), now in its seventh year, was launched by President Obama to bring together innovators around the world who are engaged in transforming society in positive ways—some local and some global—to inspire and collaborate with one another on the most pressing challenges of our generation.
Ms. Jameson, a former Phoenix Business Journal Tech Titan and White House Champion of Change, says she submitted her application to the U.S. Department of State after learning about the Summit from a colleague on the Metro Phoenix Export Alliance (MPEXA) Marketing Committee, which she co-chairs. She got involved with MPEXA in part because of her passion for global business, technology, and the power of exporting to expand small business horizons.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for me to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs from around the world and to talk about bigger issues like how trade policy and automation affect both global politics and local jobs,” said Ms. Jameson about being selected. “I want to learn about others’ challenges, see what they are doing, try to find ways we can help each other tackle tough issues. I see this summit as so much more than just trying to get mentoring or growth funding for Colnatec.”
The summit will include a wide range of workshops, panels, ignite talks, pitch competitions, mentoring, and networking sessions aimed to give participants tailored opportunities to gain skill and relationships that will help their ventures grow. Within the Summit there will also be demonstration areas, experiential learning exhibitions, and opportunities to connect with industry experts. In addition to the main summit is the chance for delegates to engage with the broader Silicon Valley innovation ecosystem at over 30 partner events held throughout the week at various locations by top companies and organizations such as Facebook, Stanford School of Medicine, NASA Ames Research Center, TechNet, and many more.

Colnatec manufactures the only commercially available heated quartz crystal microbalances (QCM) for process control of film thickness measurement in high temperature processes such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Through the use of patented and patent-pending technology, researchers, manufacturers, and system-builders have reduced production run times and manufacturing costs to improve overall performance - ultimately achieving higher yields and improved process control. Colnatec technology is also frequently used in encapsulation and high flux deposition of organic light emitting diodes (OLED), optical coatings (PVD), next generation food packaging, and medical device coating. Launched in 2009, Colnatec is the recipient of Department of Energy Phase I and Phase II SBIR awards for high temperature sensors, and winners of the 2011 Arizona Commerce Authority Innovation Challenge Grant.
