The future appears bright for Pueblo entrepreneur Diana Hall’s startup ActivArmor, the company she founded in 2014 to produce custom-fit, waterproof, 3D-printed orthopedic casts and splints for medical and sports applications.
ActivArmor has been selected to receive $250,000 in assistance from the state’s Advanced Industries Accelerator Grant Program. The grant requires Hall to raise an additional $500,000 in matching capital to receive the $250,000.
The state awarded a total of about $3.2 million to 15 companies, including the Pueblo startup, out of 80 applications.
