As a company, The Microscopy & Imaging Place is the culmination of nearly
two decades of energetically expanding services to our industry. Founded as
a consortium of experts offering customized, on-site courses in all areas of
microscopy, image analysis, and sample preparation, the original company (Microscopy/Marketing
& Education or MME), rapidly became the #1 source for market research in
this poorly reported market sector (1991). New product launches and branding
followed shortly thereafter (1994), followed by the logical progression to business
plan construction and VC support (1998), and, ultimately, to new business structuring.
2003-2004 saw the first fruit of that effort with the launch of NanoTech-America,
a full support agency for NT-MDT, a Russian company which had several unsuccessful
efforts at penetrating the US market, and, in 2005-2007, the launch of BASYK,
Inc., our first efforts at full manufacturing and commercialization, focused
on a new paradigm for semiconductor metrology. Along the way, we've extended
our core competencies in microscopy and imaging to include myriad imaging technologies
for biotechnology and nanotechnology.
When asked what we do today, we can say, with pride that "We Grow Companies,
" specifically in microscopy and imaging. Whether it is hard-core market
research to provide concrete, risk-reducing data for new product launches, strategies
and processes for sales and marketing, collateral and web development, or full
corporate structuring, the MIP has successfully partnered with its clients to
provide a solid foundation for their growth and success. Our clients look to
us for a unique matrix of technical expertise, marketing and sales know-how,
and business development, all targeted to this particular niche of analytical
instrumentation. Our charter, very simply, is to use that unique matrix to help
them get to market more quickly, more effectively, and with greater return on
