Thanks to the current state of affairs, opportunities for entrepreneurs in healthcare are endless. And this week Joe is joined by an entrepreneur who set out to fix not one, but two problems and improve the lives of patients, doctors, and nurses. His name is Gary Warren, and he is the President & CEO, ivWatch. Gary’s company has developed a biosensor that continuously monitors a patient’s IV, AND he also manufactures medical-grade N95 masks.
About Gary Warren: Gary currently serves as president and CEO of ivWatch and has championed the development of non-invasive biosensors that fulfill a huge patient safety need in healthcare. Starting ivWatch in 2010, Gary assembled a team of leading scientists, clinicians, hospitals, and investors to solve a common drug delivery problem of IV infiltration and extravasation. Gary has guided ivWatch through multiple FDA and ISO clearances for this breakthrough technology with ivWatch products now being sold on the international market.
Gary has a multidisciplinary background with a 14-year career as a research scientist at NASA in aerospace and computational fluid dynamics. He then left NASA to start a successful Internet infrastructure company in the mid-1990’s and served as CEO until it’s sale to Symantec in 1999. At Symantec, Gary served as a senior vice president and oversaw advanced technologies, mergers and acquisitions and gateway software products. He also served as a member of the senior executive staff. After Symantec, Gary served as CEO for a venture-backed mobile platform company as smartphones were beginning to emerge as a market. After the sale of this company to Oracle, Gary worked for various venture capital companies doing financial analysis and due diligence which brought him to the work being done on IV infiltrations under a National Institutes of Health grant. Bringing over the core engineering talent and founding the company, Gary has grown ivWatch to an award-winning brand in healthcare that is changing the standard of care for IV therapy.
