Event Speaker Bio: 

Phoenix DeVentures founder, Jeff Christian, has been in the Medical Device field for 35 years. Initially operating out of Jeff’s garage, Phoenix DeVentures has been servicing medtech startups for over 15 years, growing to include 60 employees in 40,000 square feet of development and manufacturing space. In that time Phoenix has seen a broad spectrum of startup dynamics, with the pendulum swinging from VC’s ‘throwing’ money at some sectors to the purse strings becoming cinched tight. Phoenix has seen the effect of this broad swing in its clientele, and has grown year over year for 15 years in spite of the financial trauma to this industry sector.
