On Thursday, the Akron City Council and Mayor visited Akron Ascent Innovations’ lab at the Global Business Accelerator. The AAI team provided a tour of the expanding facility and demonstrated the production and performance of dry adhesives to the attentive audience. The members of the council were even invited to try out AAI’s dry adhesive tabs to hang and reposition picture frames multiple times without damage.
“I found the concept amazing and know without a doubt that this is a product that I would over others because it allows me to change my mind when positioning something on the wall,” said Akron Ward 8 Councilwoman and Council President Marilyn Keith. “It was a thrilling experience!” The Councilwoman also praised the Akron Accelerator for providing resources to cradle AAI’s idea into a reality.
