Cambridge NanoTech Founder to Be Honored at Upcoming Mass High Tech “Women to Watch” Event

Cambridge, MA | Posted on February 24th, 2009

Cambridge NanoTech today announced that its founder and CEO, Dr. Jill S. Becker, is being honored by Mass High Tech at their Women to Watch gala on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at the Charles Hotel in Boston, MA.

Dr. Becker was selected as one of 10 "Women to Watch" in 2009, out of over 100 nominees, by the publication and an advisory panel of leading academic and business professionals. The women being honored "exemplify the best and brightest among women at the highest level of technology businesses in New England," according to the Mass High Tech announcement.

"It's a privilege to be able to live and work in New England, harnessing and cultivating what I believe are the most talented scientific, technological, and entrepreneurial minds in the world," said Dr. Becker. "Our resources here, both academic and commercial, enable and encourage innovation well above the norm."

Dr. Becker established and self-funded her dynamic, Cambridge-based nanotechnology company in 2003, driven by an unwavering desire to bring greater awareness of atomic layer deposition (ALD) to the marketplace, and to innovate new ways to use her science to help others succeed in their endeavors. Her business model is unique—in addition to building ALD equipment, she also uses the equipment to advance this science personally, by conducting breakthrough chemical research in-house with a highly skilled staff of Ph.D. scientists. An expert in her field, Dr. Becker cultivated her knowledge and enthusiasm for ALD at Harvard's prestigious Gordon Lab. She continues to work diligently to balance her professional life as the CEO of a startup technology company with her uncompromising commitment to raising her young family.

Mass High Tech is a leading New England technology journal. This is the publication's sixth year honoring women in business through its Women to Watch program.
