Announcement from Connect regarding Bern Medical's completion of the Springboard program:
“ Bern Medical has successfully completed the CONNECT Springboard program. CONNECT has assisted in the formation and development of more than 3,000 companies in the San Diego region and is widely regarded as one of the world's most successful organizations linking inventors and entrepreneurs with the resources they need for commercialization of innovative products in high tech and life sciences. The program has been modeled in more than 50 regions around the world.

CONNECT has been recognized by Time, Inc. and Entrepreneur magazines and last year received the 2010 Innovation in Economic Development Award from the U.S. Department of Commerce for creation of Regional Innovation Clusters.
