Cal-X Stars Accelerator to Present Medtech Portfolio at Founders Club During JP Morgan Healthcare Conference

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator www.calxstars.com, recently recognized by BizBest eMagazine as being one of the top accelerators in California, has announced it will present  its 2013 class of medtech portfolio companies at The Founders Club DEMO Day at the San Francisco offices of Wilson Sonsini.  This is the 2nd annual Founders Club Healthcare Life Science Demo Day event, which will coincide with the 32nd annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco.

The Cal-X Stars 2013 portfolio of medtech and biotech companies to be presented January 8th, 2013 by Howard Leonhardt, Founder, Chairman & CEO:

Bioheart, Inc. www.bioheartinc.com - In Phase II/III trials stage in U.S. for muscle stem cells for treating advanced heart failure.  Believed to be the only cell type able to create new contractile muscle in heart scar tissue.   Phase II/III Part I interim results demonstrated 95.7 meters improvement in exercise capacity in Bioheart MyoCell patients over placebo (-4 meters) in a double blind randomized study.  This compares to -4 meters for CHF drugs, 16 meters for CRT pacers, 53 meters for cardiac stem cells, 52 meters for adipose derived cells, 10 meters allogeneic bone marrow derived cells.  (See Bioheart SEC Filings for risk factors).

MyoStim Pacerswww.myostimpacers.com - First heart pacemaker designed to recruit healing stem cells to heart tissue and to promote proliferation of resident cardiomyocytes and new blood vessel growth.  A peripheral model is designed to accelerate healing of wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and to improve blood flow in limbs.  Company holds three issued pioneering patents including the landmark claim of the specific signal for converting pluripotent stem cells to beating heart muscle cells. 

Stem Cell Brawww.stemcellbra.com - World's first female bra designed to recruit her own stem cells from fat tissue and other sources to breast tissue for augmenting fullness and size without surgery.  Utilizes a conductive gelatin bra liner connected to an electrical stimulator the size of a cell phone that produces a homing signal for stem cells in breast tissue via stimulation of SDF-1 protein release.

Heart Pump Cathwww.heartpumpcath.com - The first heart pump catheter developed in Germany by Cardiobridge will file for CE Mark commercial approval 3Q 2013 based on clinical trials conducted over the past 2 years.   Clinical studies thus far have demonstrated a 33% improvement in cardiac output, substantially improved renal function and creatinine levels in acute decompensating heart failure patients. 

BioPace – The world's first biological pacemaker made of living cells. 

HeartScore – Do you know your Heart Score?  The company has developed a single composite score combined with a real time monitoring wrist watch, SecondBeat, to guide people to be in compliance with diet, exercise and treatment regimes for lowering risks.  The composite score is made up of genetic tests, blood tests including pioneering ischemia and inflammation panels, as well as an artery scan. 

AortaCell – stem cells and a non-invasive abdominal belt with a wireless electrical energy pulse used to treat aortic aneurysms.

CoroStim – Vibrational energy utilized to inhibit plaque formation in high risk coronary arteries.

EndoCell – Endothelial progenitor cells derived from fat tissue injected into coronary arteries via an adventia delivery catheter for healing purposes.

MyoValve + Valvublator – stem cell seeding and scaffold support of heart valve leaflets post removal of calcification with the Valvublator catheter.   Allows patient to keep their own heart valve instead of getting a transplant. 

Andrew Romans, general partner and founder of The Founders Club commented, "Los Angeles, and Santa Monica in particular, is a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity harnessing the unique talent, creativity and energy of the region. We are working closely with the top individuals creating the most important technology companies including The Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator, Leonhardt Ventures and Cal-X The California Stock Xchange. We welcome the opportunity to showcase our portfolio companies and connect them to the Silicon Valley."

Founders Club events bring together CEOs, founders, VCs, LPs, angel investors, bankers and other important members of the venture capital ecosystem via demo days, conferences and networking events.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
