Cortech Solutions

Cortech Solutions was started in 2001 by Lloyd Smith to configure, install, support and provide education for advanced non-invasive systems that leverage brain imaging technology to objectively measure and act upon thoughts, desires and feelings in other words, Cortech Solutions makes mind-machine interfaces. Cortech Solutions work with small independent manufacturers around the world to develop advanced technologies, integrate those technologies into systems by developing bridge technologies (whether software or hardware) and sell, install and support the whole solution.

Smith, who after leaving Neuroscan, a medical device and scientific instrument manufacturer, thought that he and his wife may finally be able to realize their dream of starting their own company and living at the beach. Wilmington had everything on the Smith’s must have list, including airport with major carriers, hospital, university, low cost of living, good schools, good neighborhoods, a thriving historic district and ethnic diversity. Wilmington’s quality of place is what brought Lloyd here, and he feels it attracts a lot of other like minded people. Furthermore, Cortech Solutions has invested significantly in internships for UNCW students as well as collaborative research projects with faculty, honors undergraduates and graduate students in psychology, computer science and political science. Additionally, Cortech has contributed money, time and energy to supporting the UNCW Entrepreneurship Center and Business Week. This is all a part of a vision we have for how local companies should work with the university and vice-versa.
