Gainesville, FL/May 11,2021 – Evren today announced that it was selected to participate in the 2021 Rosenman Innovators cohort, a group of early-stage companies chosen for their innovative technologies and patient impact.

2021 is the sixth year for the Rosenman Innovator selection cycle. To be eligible, companies must be developing technologies in the medical device, diagnostics, digital health, or health services spaces, and must be seeking funding from seed stage to Series A. The final 10-12 finalists were selected after a rigorous application and pitching process that began in January.

The Rosenman Institute was named one of the top life science accelerators in the US by CypherBio. Others in the top 10 include JLABS, Y Combinator, and Medtech Innovator. Evren was also recently selected as a finalist to pitch at the MedTech Innovator Road Tour (out of over 1,200 applications) and await the decision on whether they have made it to the MedTech Innovator Showcase.

Blythe Karow, President & CEO, will be presenting Evren’s recent progress and investment summary at the Rosenman Symposium on June 10th. “It is a great honor to be selected as a Rosenman Innovator and I’m excited for the opportunity to work with the excellent partners and coaches connected to the Rosenman Institute for our accelerator program and final pitch.” The Rosenman Innovators receive customized and strategic coaching in communications, product development, IP, clinical/regulatory, reimbursement, marketing, and business strategy from our network of experts.

"We are thrilled to be able to help such a dynamic group," said Christine Winoto, founder and director of the UCSF Rosenman Institute. "We are excited to connect this year's Rosenman Innovators with our network of investors, who often invest, and sometimes even lead the Series A rounds. We have seen many companies in our past cohorts make great progress and reach their milestones, such as obtaining FDA approval. Several have products and services currently in the market."
