If your company is in the cardiovascular medicine industry, you may have an easy time looking for funding sources, since the need for treatments for cardiovascular health issues is increasing with the aging populations of North America and Europe. One of the biggest institutions that is making great headway in this industry is the Cleveland Clinic.
The Cleveland Clinic has spearheaded the industry by leasing the Global Cardiovascular Innovation Center (GCIC), which is a $250 million research and development center. The GCIC has all the things needed for entrepreneurs who are developing new solutions to treat or cure various cardiovascular diseases that plague todayâ€™s Western society. GCIC helps the cardiovascular industry on several fronts, including an incubation program that allows entrepreneurs to use their facilities to learn how to use the latest state-of-the-art equipment and work with leading specialists in the field.
The GCIC Incubation Center is conveniently located in the center of the Cleveland Clinic campus and gives entrepreneurs access to field equipment, conference rooms, and business centers to help advance cardiovascular medicine and market new treatments and drugs to improve the cardiovascular health to cardiac patients worldwide.
The GCICâ€™s board of directors is chaired by Dr. Steven Nissen, MD, who is also the chairman of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and is a board certified doctor of internal medicine and is a professor of medicine at Ohio State University. He also sits on the boards of nine medical publications.
