Garage Featured on NBC-17′s “What’s Next”
February 5, 2014
TV Journalist Melanie Saunders visited the Garage for her series called “What’s Next” on NBC-17. Her visit was a part of a larger story on why N.C. State is one of the top innovation hubs in the country.
Suzanne Matthews, founder of Soutenu Dancewear and Garage member, spoke with Saunders about her product, a dance tight that integrates support for the feet and ankles to help prevent injuries.
On the heels of President Barack Obama’s big announcement at the university, Saunders also stopped by the Next Generation Power Electronics Innovation Institute, as well as the Textile Protection and Comfort Center’s Thermal Protection Laboratory where “Pyroman” tests uniform materials to protect firefighters from burns.
