Inscope Medical Solutions, the upstart company formed by UofL College of Business MBA students that’s been steadily winning business competitions for its innovative intubation device, is continuing development in California.
Inscope won a spot in the 2016 Techstars Healthcare Accelerator in partnership with Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. The collaboration helps develop promising healthcare innovations.
Companies chosen for the partnership receive a $120,000 investment along with access to with mentors, sponsors, clinical expertise, software and hardware, investors and corporate partners. On Demo Day in June, they will make a pitch to healthcare leaders, investors, journalists and other community members.
Inscope has developed a disposable, low-cost video laryngoscope that is the first all-in-one intubation solution to provide a clear view of every airway. The OneScope airway management device can be used in ambulances, helicopters, hospitals and surgery centers.
The company has won competition after competition for the past year and the team closed the NASDAQ stock market last August. It is made up of Maggie Galloway, Mary Nan Mallory, Adam Casson and Will Coburn.
All four earned entrepreneurship master’s of business administration degrees at UofL. Mallory, a physician and professor in UofL’s School of Medicine, co-invented the device and the university’s Office of Technology Transfer licensed its technology.
