In this episode of Medsider Radio, we sat down with John Murphy, President and CEO of Virtual Incision.
With a background in life sciences, aerospace, private equity, and venture capital, John co-founded Virtual Incision in 2006. The company makes miniature, portable robots that can be used to perform specific operations. The first iteration is designed for colon resections, with new variations planned for the future.
In this discussion, John shares tips on how to raise funds as an early-stage medical device company, planning a regulatory pathway that complements your product roadmap, and how to follow a dual-track approach to exiting (warning: it’s a lot of work).
Before we jump into the conversation, I wanted to mention a few things:
