We will hear preliminary findings from the Biomedical Device Innovation program scouting team exploring cardiac imaging with Dr. Finn.  Also, we will be discussing one technology this week from the Venture Team Competition that is a new type of catheter used to treat radiation proctitis.  The team will discuss their progress to date and talk through some of the questions they have come across as they explore commercialization strategies for this technology.
Some questions to keep in mind are:

  • What is the problem and what is the solution?
  • What is the novelty?
  • Does it provide a 10x improvement?
  • Are there other applications?
  • Who is the competition?
  • Are there similar technologies people know of?  If so, what are the differences?
  • What is the market size?  Who are the customers?
  •  What are different strategies to move the technology forward?
