Who We Are

Leading the Team

Meet Matt and Tim

Our ceo and co-Founder

Tim Nelson

As a physician/scientist trained in medicine and cardiac developmental biology, I have been driven to innovate with available technology with the goal of new product development. Congenital heart disease provides the optimal mix of challenges and opportunities to allow cross-functional teams to succeed and grow a whole new industry. 

My mission is to inspire biomedical innovation teams and solve real-world medical problems with a focus on products that will obsolete the traditional processes that define yesterday’s healthcare experience.
