Eric Soederberg, president of Sunrise Labs in Bedford, has been named the 2019 New Hampshire Tech Alliance Entrepreneur of the Year and will be formally recognized on Thursday, June 13 as part of the organization’s 31st annual Entrepreneur of the Year event.

Soederberg joined Sunrise Labs in 2008 and has spearheaded the product development services company’s growth since then. Specializing in medical device and life science instrumentation development, Sunrise is known for solving tough engineering problems and turning novel ideas into commercially viable products. The company has over 80 employees.

His career includes over 20 years of product development leadership at Draper Labs and Motorola. He moved to New Hampshire in 1999 to join DEKA and brought to market the world’s first iBOT mobility system.

“Eric, through his decades of significant accomplishments, is a lifelong entrepreneur who really understands that being successful requires creating a positive corporate culture and proper work/life balance for his employees,” said Gary Sloper, co-chair of the EOY planning committee and head of global sales engineering and customer success at Oracle.

This year’s EOY Award event will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 13, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Downtown, Manchester.

In addition to recognizing this year’s EOY winner, the event will feature remarks from Eric Fossum, inventor of the CMOS image sensor “camera-on-a-chip” which is the technology behind the cameras in smartphones.

Tickets are $45 for alliance members, $65 for non-members, and must be purchased in advance online.
