Thursday, April 17, 2014
A Grand Rapids-based medical device startup aims to create a pipeline for new products between West Michigan and the developing world — not just for its products, but for other companies and their needed devices as well, the startup’s founders say.
Sisu Global Health is a new startup partnership between two existing Michigan companies. Gillian Henker, chief technology officer of Sisu, is the founder and CEO of Design Innovations for Infants and Mothers Everywhere, Inc., while Sisu CEO Carolyn Yarina and chief marketing officer Katie Kirsch come from CentriCycle, a former nonprofit based out of Chassell in the Upper Peninsula.
