AdapTac's CEO, Dr. Candice M. Hughes, was recognized by the Connecticut Technology Council last night as one of six state finalists for Entrepreneur, Women of Innovation. The award is sponsored by leading science and technology firms including Boehringer Ingelheim, Pfizer, Covidien, United Technologies, GE and more.
In an interview that evening, when asked what advice Dr. Hughes would give to other women aspiring to be innovators in science and technology, she said, "Persistence is the most important thing. Don't ever give up."
Dr. Hughes stressed that the whole team behind AdapTac is critical for the company's success in achieving its mission of helping kids through educational games for behavioral health.
AdapTac Games will have a new team member this spring when a local Darien High School student spends a month learning how a scrappy Indie game startup works. Working out of the StamfordiCenter state-supported accelerator, our intern will have access to numerous local startups plus Tech Meetups and other educational programming and networking.
One frequent complaint companies make of newly graduated students is that they lack work experience. Darien High School's internship program in conjunction with the support of local businesses helps give students this critical experience. If America wants to grow science and tech business and expertise, it's critical that both business and educational institutions support this mission.
AdapTac Games is pleased to do our part in support of growing American STEM expertise and supporting our local community.
