BRADENTON, Fla. – Last week, audience members at Station 2 Innovation Center in Bradenton had a front row seat to learn about the latest threat detection technologies being developed locally by Trace Eye-D, as well as, a candid presentation on the company’s journey to success.

Trace Eye-D president and CEO, Chris Baden, spoke to a crowded room on his company’s evolution from an idea on how to make the world safer, to a research and development entity, and about their recent completion of successful field trials with federal government agencies. During the presentation, Baden talked in-depth about his entrepreneurial history and how his roots in the community contributed to his company’s growth.

“Being involved with Station 2, and the community as a whole, has played a substantial role in helping our team get Trace Eye-D to where it is today. Many of the people that helped us tackle critical roadblocks early-on as a startup, came to us through Sara Hand and Station 2,” said Baden. “Events like this, which focus on building connections and sharing innovative ideas are essential for entrepreneurs and important for the community.”
