Miromatrix Medical Inc.

Executive Summary

Regenerative medicine start-up Miromatrix Medical is working to commercialize a technology known as perfusion decellularization. Its proprietary, patent-protected technology involves the decellularization of any vascularized tissue, up to and including whole organs, leaving behind a completely preserved native scaffold (matrix) that retains the original architecture, mechanical properties and vascular network of the tissue or organ. This scaffold can then be repopulated with vascular- and organ-specific regenerative cells and, under controlled conditions in a bioreactor, a biocompatible, functioning organ or tissue is created.

Floelle Inc.

Floelle Inc. is developing a nonsurgical solution for women with stress and mixed urinary incontinence that it thinks will address the drawbacks of current technologies and provide a safe and effective solution that is convenient for patients. The Floelle device resides in the urethra where it allows normal urination, but a pressure-sensitive valve blocks the involuntary urine leaks caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, and other activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure in women with stress urinary incontinence.
