The UCSF Rosenman Institute has been supporting transformative health technology companies from concept to commercialization since 2014.

Here’s what our remarkable Rosenman Innovators have to say about us

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with the key healthcare partners through the ADAPT program, and grateful for the impact the $150,000 grant has had on accelerating our technology development. The ADAPT program has supported Emme in our ability to reach patients more quickly and on a broader scale, which is especially meaningful in the context of the unprecedented demand the past year has shown for women’s digital health support.”

Amanda French

“We’re still benefiting from the connections we made at the Rosenman Innovator program. Some of the advisors, our marketing consultant, some of the really important business and partner relationships that we were introduced to, continue to have value. I expect them to continue to have value for many more years to me and to our company.”

Kimberlie Cerrone
Co-Founder & CEO, Tiatros

“The Rosenman Innovator Program has been a terrific resource for finding experts to help grow the company at every step: regulatory, clinical, development, legal, and otherwise. The program honed in and focused on critical issues and topics highly relevant to development in diagnostics, devices, and therapeutics.”

Joshua Reicher, MD
Co-Founder, Imvaria

“Our experience with the Rosenman ADAPT program was exceptional. From the first step (a reasonably short and to the point application, which is rare for opportunities like these), to the periodic updates as we moved through the stages, to the insights and feedback offered during our pitch opportunities, the value for ConsejoSano in working with the Rosenman Institute has been tangible. We’ve already connected with two large potential health plan clients which I expect will lead to significant revenue opportunities for us. I would recommend the ADAPT program to any healthtech company that is ready to grow on a bigger stage.”

Abner Mason
CEO, ConsejoSano

“We have always felt so fortunate to have worked with the UCSF Rosenman Institute. Of the three people they introduced us to, one joined as our COO, one as a director of the board and one as a consultant for six months.”

Mehdi Peikar, MD
Founder & CEO, BRIUS

“I highly recommend entering the ADAPT Program to any innovative startup! Winning a proof-of-concept opportunity with a leading healthcare company via ADAPT 2020 was a pivotal moment for Oshi Health.  The clinical study we have launched with our sponsor will prove the value of our virtual-first gastroenterology clinic relative to traditional GI care delivery.”

Sam Holliday
CEO, Oshi Health

“The Rosenman Innovator program was a fantastic experience and opportunity to get exposure to seed-stage healthcare investors and other industry stakeholders. We met two investors who participated in our round through the program.”

Ade Adesanya
Co-Founder & President, Moving Analytics

“The Rosenman Executive Mentorship program introduced us to medtech legends with years of experience, who have created several hundred million dollars in acquisition value in our technology sector.”

Maryam Parviz
Co-Founder & CEO, SDIP Innovations

“We were matched with Cannon Quality Group, who provided valuable guidance on appropriate quality systems for our stage of development, as well as a roadmap for the future.”

James Mitchell, MD
CEO, Oncodisc

“Through the Rosenman Innovators I was able to meet investors, advisors, and fellow CEOs who helped me both get introduced to investors and navigate the process. I would recommend the Innovators program to a friend or fellow CEO: it is one of the most accessible friendly welcoming communities that I have found in the medtech space.”

Iris Wedeking
Co-Founder & CEO, iDENTICAL

BRIUS® is a revolutionary method that can be used instead of braces or aligners that moves the teeth independently. Placed behind the teeth so they cannot be seen, this method considerably shortens treatment time, allows for easier cleaning than traditional braces, and is more comfortable than any other behind-the-teeth braces.
