The story behind HAI Solutions is so inspiring and similar to many life science entrepreneurs who start their companies after personal (and occasionally tragic) experiences.
Nick Perrenoud is one of those entrepreneurs. He's the co-founder of HAI Solutions and led the development and patent for a solution to protect patients from the accidental or negligent contamination of IV anesthesia medications.
Nick learned the importance of protecting patients with sterile IVs, not only as a nurse anesthetist, but also when caring for his adopted son who required IVs for seven years and spent nearly three years in the hospital to, to central line infections.
He shares many useful insights for any medical device entrepreneur such as how securing patents has helped with fundraising, focusing on your purpose, and being patient-driven.
