May 5th, 2022. In April in San Francisco, CA, home to inventors, innovators, and investors, the 2022 AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology (CGIT) Summit got underway. There was a lot of great interaction among medical providers, investors and industry and one of the highlights was the Shark Tank style competition among start-up companies in the GI space.
Twenty companies applied for 6 spots to compete live in San Francisco and Endosound was selected among the 6 finalists. Competitors each presented a 5-minute elevator pitch to a panel of GIs and investors, followed by 5-10 minutes of questions. Our founder, Steven Steinberg, MD, did a fabulous job pin-pointing the important details the panelists were seeking.
Without further delay,…
This win further validates that our technology is ready to disrupt the EUS market. Along with the award recognition, we will also receive guidance from the AGA CGIT committee, providing access to additional funding and partnering opportunities. We could not be more excited!
As the 2022 AGA CGIT Shark Tank winner, we will represent the AGA CGIT in the Shark Tank competition at Digestive Disease Week (DDW) on May 21st, 2022, in San Diego, CA. Once again Dr. Steinberg will be there to demonstrate our disruptive product and business plan.
Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to realizing our goals and more collaboration between the professional societies, strategic partners, and the GI community.
