“Early stage inventors are creators, and building a business that is going to commercialize that product brings a great deal of “conflict” decision-making,” Medtown Managing Director and Co-founder Chris Fair said. “That transition is hard and the inventor normally does not have that DNA in them.”

“If you think of company development like child development, we get involved after elementary school, work with them through the high school years and when they are stable and ready to head off to college, we transition out,” Fair said. “It is not our goal to be operating these companies long term, but to provide them the tools to succeed so they can do it on their own.”

MEDTOWN's operating team brings extensive experience from companies like DePuy, Genzyme, OrthoPediatrics, RTI Biologics and Zimmer. Read deeper coverage by Urvaksh Karkaria from the Atlanta Business Chronicle.
