Job-Set, Nanobiotix & Resolute Marine Energy Win FACCNE French-American Business Awards
Innovation Recognized in Digital Technology, Healthcare and Cleantech
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., May 29, 2015 – Two early-stage Boston companies and one Cambridge nanomedicine company have won a 2015 French-American Business Award (FABA), according to Patrick Bian, president of the French-American Chamber of Commerce New England (FACCNE).
Job-Set and Resolute Marine Energy in Boston were recognized for their work in digital technology and cleantech, respectively. Nanobiotix of Cambridge, Mass. took top honors in the healthcare category.

“A French-American Business Award is the most prestigious honor that the FACCNE bestows on up-and-coming companies,” said Bian. “We’re delighted by the caliber of the contenders for this year’s awards. It was not an easy choice.”
Held May 28 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, the 14th annual FACCNE dinner and awards ceremony featured keynoter Damien Balsan, executive vice president of LoopPay. LoopPay, a leader in mobile-wallet technology, was one of last year’s FABA recipients, three months before it became a subsidiary of a global electronics giant.
“We’ll be watching to see what’s ahead for this year’s winners. We’re very excited about their prospects,” said Bian. “We’ll also be on the lookout for the next crop of innovative companies in the French-American business community for our 15th annual FABA dinner and ceremony next year.”
A blue-ribbon panel of judges this spring narrowed a New England-wide pool of candidates to seven finalists, and the audience at the Sonesta voted for this year’s honorees after hearing a brief presentation by each of the finalists.
