The new startup recently acquired the insulin pump company Asante and plans to fine tune algorithms developed by founders Bryan Mazlish and Lane Desborough to be the first to commercialize a fully automated closed loop system, which controls an insulin pump with a combination of a continuous glucose monitor and computer software, which controls the pump based on the readings of the CGM.
Information about the founders taken from their Website is listed below:
Dubbed as “the father of the artificial pancreas,” Jeffrey served as the CEO of JDRF and had previously launched a successful technology company that went public.
OK, you spotted him – Bigfoot himself. Bryan is the inventor of the Bigfoot System. He is also the founder of a fully automated Wall Street trading company.
A hacker at heart, Lane is famous in T1D circles as the co-developer of Nightscout CGM in the Cloud. What most don’t realize is that he was also the Chief Engineer at Medtronic.
A bonafide VC rock star, Jon is the financial whiz behind Bigfoot. He was a founding board member and former CFO of WellDoc.
