ELYRIA -- Dr. Simon Melikian invented a way for robots to see and learn. Basically taking the biology of the human eye and turning it into technology.
"I knew I had something really, really good to sell," he said.
But he had no idea how to turn his creation into a business.
"I know how science works, I know how engineering works, I know how to build things but building a company is a completely different set of skills," he said.
So he went to GLIDE the Great Lakes Innovation and Development Enterprise in the Desich Business and Entrepreneur Center at Lorain County Community College. There he met experience business minds who gave him great advice, for free.
