The medical schools at Yale University and University of Connecticut are an important component of Connecticut’s medical device ecosystem. They continue to spawn new medical device technologies and companies, some of which Connecticut Innovations has invested in.
Connecticut’s medical device community also benefits from the Biomedical Engineering Alliance and Consortium (BEACON), a local nonprofit organization that serves as a valuable resource for information and networking opportunities within this community.
“CI has been one of the most supportive and understanding investors I have ever worked with. Having worked with CI in my previous venture, there was no question I wanted to find a way to work with the organization again. I feel so fortunate to have had that opportunity with NovaTract Surgical.” – Eleanor Tandler, Co-founder and CEO, NovaTract Surgical LLC
