Areas of Expertise

  • Fundraising and Running a Neurostimulation Company

    I am happy to discuss our experiences over the past 7 years in developing a neurostimulation system for the treatment of tinnitus and stroke. We have run several clinical trials in the U.S. and Europe and developed our own Class III implantable device and obtained ISO 13485 certification. So I dealt with a large number of issues along the way. We raised $28 Million over the past 5 years.
