EagleHawk from Buffalo, Vermeer from Brooklyn, Resilienx from Syracuse and Civdrone from Israel each were awarded investments of $500,000. Resilienx was also named the crowd favorite in a live poll taken during the event. New York State has now invested $15 million in Genius NY over three rounds of the competition.
