Testimonials

Stefan J.M. Kraemer, MD, MBA
Surgeon, serial entrepreneur, Corporate VP of Medical Affairs
"When we first conceived the concept of WINGS - focused peer-support of new and serial entrepreneurs, backed by a strong screening committee, guided and supported by WBBA, working closely with U of W and local business leaders across all disciplines, graciously being provided access to numerous Rolodexes of successful partners and friends - we believed we were onto something that would have the potential to help the local medical device and life science community to bring new and exciting therapies and treatments to an ever increasing patient population in need. What we didn't expect was that the enthusiasm of the greater Northwest life science community to showcase new medical devices and healthcare-associated business ideas, the constantly growing interest of life science angel investors, and the passionate work of WINGS members and teams would turn the not-for-profit organization WINGS into a leading organization to help enable medical device and life science innovation at an unforeseen scale beyond its originally intended local reach."
