Two companies: Saving Lives Through Invention, Saving the Planet with Great Coffee
I’m kicking-off 2019 by interviewing two Colorado entrepreneurs who are not YET on the cover of Colorado business publications, and whom I predict will by by the end of the year! Dr. Arthur Kanowitz, Co-founder, Chairman and Chief Medical Officer of Securisyn Medical, and Kyle Kociemba Benson are at opposite ends of the speed-to-market continuum so their interviews make for a great contrast.
ER Dr. Kanowitz founded his company to address his frustration with the frequency and extreme complications caused by “unplanned extubation” – when a patient’s breathing tube comes out when it’s not supposed to. Starting as a one-man crusade, this is a story you’ll appreciate.
Kyle Benson, co-founded Bivouac Coffee with his wife, Rachel to create great tasting coffee that’s environmentally friendly. Bivouac won the 2018 “Trout Tank” competition, and has recently been approached by some national retail brands about collaborating.
Both guests are poised to cross the chasm from startup to “ON THEIR WAY!”
