This talk describes the team's non-linear journey to starting and growing a medical device company as college students. Peeyush Shrivastava is the Founder and CEO of Genetesis, a clinical-stage medical device company based out of Mason, Ohio. Peeyush and his co-founders started Genetesis out of their dorm rooms in 2013, and have since grown the company to over 20 employees with over $7 million in aggregate financing to date. Peeyush and the Genetesis team are creating novel biomagnetic imaging technologies to detect, diagnose and enable treatment for the world’s most debilitating diseases, starting with the Faraday Magnetocardiograph, a solution to rapidly detect coronary artery disease.
The company’s work has been featured in CNN Money, Inc. Magazine, Forbes, MedCityNews and VentureBeat. In 2017, Peeyush took a leave of absence from The Ohio State University’s undergraduate biomedical science program to build the company full-time as a Thiel Fellow. Unsurprisingly, he is also a nerd in his spare time; when not working with his team, he can be found tinkering with his telescopes.
