From the CEO’s Desk

“It is my aspiration that health finally will be seen not as a blessing to be wished for, but as a human right to be fought for.” – United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan

In this edition, we are excited to share news about our companies-in-residence who are “fighting” every day to bring better healthcare to patients globally.

Among these companies are three new startups targeting women’s healthcare that were just accepted into the Institute: Igantia Therapeutics, Marz Medical and Madorra. These early-stage companies are following in the footsteps of two graduating companies, InterVene and Prescient Surgical, which successfully graduated from the Institute with a strong round of funding.

We are also proud to announce the launch of the Ferolyn Fund as a tribute to Ferolyn Powell’s invaluable contributions to the medtech industry. Ferolyn embodied the spirit of raising the bar for better patient care, both as a CEO at Evalve and as a mentor to young medtech entrepreneurs.

We hope you enjoy this edition and would love to hear from you about what you would like to read more of! You can also follow us on TwitterFacebook and LinkedIn.

Ann Fyfe
President and Chief Executive Officer
