Welcome to my website!

I am currently focused on helping early stage medical device start-ups build their business from fundraising to commercialization.  The icons for Professional and Academic provide more information on my background.  

Much of this website is focused on my academic research on the medical device industry. The icons on the bottom of this page contain information on my dissertation entitled "European Market Entry Strategies for Venture Capital Financed Medical Device Companies: Where, When, How, and Why." A summmary of my dissertation overview can be accessed by clicking the DBA Dissertation icon on the left of this page.

This website also includes a summary of the findings of my master's (MBA) thesis entitled, "Financing and Beyond: The Role of Venture Capital in Silicon Valley Based Medical Device Companies" which can be accessed by clicking on a related icon to the left.  Information regarding the Japanese medical device market can be accessed from the icons at the bottom of the page.  This information has not been updated since 2005 and therefore may be out of date.
