What our Rosenman Innovators say …

“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

“Early-stage companies, it’s really hard to get the first contact with investors. We built those connections through UCSF Rosenman and we got our lead investor for our seed round through this program.”

Maryam Parviz
Co-Founder & CEO, SDIP Innovations

“The quality of the investors was refreshing. Similarly with the mentor network, they all had strong experience as operators in the healthcare startup scene or the payer or provider side, so you were having in depth conversations with subject matter experts.”

Ade Adesanya
Co-Founder & President, Moving Analytics

“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

“Tiatros is very lucky to be a Rosenman Innovator. The program fostered our collaboration with the San Francisco Veteran Affairs Health Care System. We look forward to continuing to explore ways to serve Veterans in the VA system.”

Kimberlie Cerrone
CEO & Founder, Tiatros

“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

“We connected with early-stage investors key to closing our seed round and raising more than $2 million in grant funding. The services provided by Cannon Quality Group included more than six months of manufacturing in a controlled environment and strategic continued input to our QMS that helped us advance significantly over a short period of time.”

Maryam Parviz
CEO, SDIP Innovations

“The Innovator program connected us with mentors who were successful founders, sophisticated investors, and scientific experts. This unique model enabled us to accelerate our progress over a few short months, successfully raise our seed round, and expand our advisory board. We have loved being a part of the Rosenman community and highly recommend the Rosenman Innovator program to any medical device or technology startup! “

Rui Jing Jiang
CEO & Co-Founder, Avisi Technologies

“The Rosenman Innovator program was game-changing for our company. We [met] several highly-experienced mentors whose guidance helped us make drastic changes in our organization and strategy… and optimize our commercial path.”

Ted Abraham, MD
Founder, Perceptive Navigation

“Liv Labs adopted a more aggressive plan and visionary scope as a result of intensive peer and investor mentoring in preparation for the Rosenman Innovator program pitch.”

Melody Roberts
CEO, Liv Labs
