I got to know the CIH team when I was just a student hoping to solve some medical problems. Even though I was very new to medical innovation, CIH patiently guided me through the starting processes of product development, working with regulations and designing studies.
The time I spent at CIH has been enriching and fulfilling in many ways. I have learnt so much from the experience working with them, and gained even greater inspirations from their enthusiasm. The team’s vision for the future of medical innovation and their resilience in pursuing it has meaningfully shaped my own insights and dreams about the field.
CIH has been an integral and memorable part of my journey since stepping into medical innovation. I look forward to seeing more great things coming from them in the years to come.

As an innovator in the medtech space, I’m privileged to have gotten the access to CIH’s support so early into my start-up journey. CIH offers a holistic support to both the innovation and the innovator. The implantable medtech space is a tough yet rewarding journey. It takes a village to commercialize a medical implant technology, passing all the quality, regulatory and clinical pathways, without undermining the fund raising part. CIH is here to hand hold and guide the medtech spin-offs at various stages of development. They trusted me and my innovation, way too early into my journey. Their trust and subsequent seed funding has helped me gain the trust of other stakeholders and boost my value. I can’t imagine my entrepreneurial journey without CIH in it. My heart-felt gratitude to CIH and its absolutely amazing people for their inimitable and consistent support. Anyday, CIH is the backbone of my entrepreneurial journey and it’s my pleasure to be a part of their portfolio spin-offs.
