Orthovative Technologies, a company that was co-founded by a student in Wake Forest University's Evening Professionals MBA program and won this year's Elevator Competition, will participate in the 11th annual technology briefing of the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce.

The company was founded by David Smitherman and Tadhg O'Gara, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and and assistant professor at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
