Reasons to Invest

Help save more lives with an FDA Class I Augmented Reality Surgical Camera
300 million surgeries per year and good blood flow is a key to recovery
Current measurement tools originated in the ‘60s and require contact or injection of a contrast dye.

OVERVIEW


MedTech imaging for non-contact visualization of blood flow

Scinovia Corp. is a medtech company engaged in the development of proprietary, non-contact diagnostics for cardiovascular and vascular surgeries with the aim to enhance patient outcomes, making surgeries safer and more cost-effective. We focus on improving outcomes of heart bypass, revascularization, and organ transplant therapies where blood flow is key to recovery and to reduce death and costly complications.


Scinovia is entering a growing market of $500M in sales last year with a revolutionary device VUFLOW that provides non-contact, real-time, quantitative data. Presently, the market relies on contact methods that were developed 60 years ago.


Our product roadmap includes a robotic-assisted diagnostic to enhance ease of use and precision while visualizing blood flow during surgery.

Scinovia is a pre-revenue, FDA registered company. VUFLOW units are being scheduled to enter hospitals in 2022 to explore diverse therapeutic areas and generate revenue

THE PROBLEM


Assessing the blood flow for surgery is challenging and costly

1. A top challenge surgeons face is knowing whether a procedure has poor blood flow.

The number one problem surgeons face is knowing whether a procedure has poor blood flow. 20% of bypass grafts have less than 
50% of average blood flow and 14% of breast reconstruction have necrosis. These cases add up: it costs around $100k per case to address breast tissue necrosis.

2. Current tools require contact and have challenges.






THE SOLUTION


Know-the-flow in real-time with VU-FLOW

Case studies have shown visualizing blood flow during surgeries can substantially assist in predicting if poor outcomes may occur. Poor outcomes result in longer recovery for people, costly complications, re-admissions, re-operations, or death.We designed VUFLOW to be the first non-contact visualization tool. Surgeons can now point-n-image to visualize blood flow.

Business Model

Software as a Service will be offered on a pay-per-case basis and a multi-year subscription will be offered at a discount, which can be used to help capitalize sales growth. The data acquisition hardware will undergo periodic upgrades to keep up with new visualization features.


The cost for the first 7 units have been paid. We plan to fund operations through raising capital, selling subscriptions, and leveraging credit facilities through financial services in the MedTech industry. 


*The above images include a rendering of a future product. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


We plan to grow based on net income, use credit facilities to cover costs over the 4 month gap from building units to selling subscriptions.

THE MARKET


300 million major surgeries are being performed annually

Doctors use contact devices to measure blood flow speeds in over 300,000 cases per year. However, an average of 300 million major procedures are performed annually. The global market is estimated to be over $500M in annual sales.


A market comp Novadaq sold fluorescent angiography devices and was acquired by Stryker for $701M, 7 years after its market cap was approximately $100M on NASDAQ.


*The above images include a rendering of a future product. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


OUR TRACTION


Scheduling clinical studies

Scinovia is an FDA registered manufacturer. Several VU-FLOW units are being scheduled for comparative clinical studies in early 2022. This represents an opportunity for VUFLOW to be published, become known among the societies and conferences, and to assess various indications for potential regulatory clearance.


Surgeons from diverse therapies, e.g., bypass, vascular, plastics, cancer, and emergency rooms have shown strong interest in exploring ways that VUFLOW could help in various procedures.


*The above images include a rendering of a future product. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


Scinovia is currently integrating a robotic assisted option that will auto-adjust imaging to reduce glare and improve precision and ease-of-use.


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Product is still currently under development not yet available on the market.


WHY INVEST


Join a game-changing company

We aim to innovate and provide doctors with better tools to improve outcomes for loved ones. We’re targeting existing users of contact devices to switch to our revolutionary non-contact VUFLOW. Last year, hospitals spent over $500M on contact devices.


Our goal is for VUFLOW, which is a platform technology, to become an appliance that is used across many types of procedures.

Founder Spotlight: Jim Sund.

about 2 months ago


Scinovia Community,


During surgery, blood flow is crucial to a doctor’s understanding of a patient’s recovery time. Scinovia’s non-contact imaging technology provides real-time information to help doctors make more data-driven decisions during procedures, resulting in more lives being saved.


We understand the importance of precise measurements when it comes to life-saving surgeries. That’s why we developed VUFLOW - one of the only non-contact measurement devices that visualizes blood flow speeds in surface vessels during major surgeries.


I would like to introduce you to our visionary CEO, Jim Sund, who has dedicated his life to bringing our vision to fruition.

Jim Sund (Ph.D., MBA), CEO and Founder

  • PhD  - Electrical and Computer Engineering

  • MBA -  General Management & Finance

  • BS    - Chemistry, Zoology

 

Jim Sund is a rare person with extensive backgrounds in both science and business, stemming from a wide-ranging curiosity and drive to see how everything works. In diverse environments from NASA to pharmaceutical companies such as Merck and Roche to high-tech businesses like Verizon, Cisco, Lenovo and Lockheed Martin Dr. Sund has brought his extraordinary skills to solve questions of new market entry strategy, sales and marketing strategy, manufacturing and operations, and innovations in product management and IT platforms.


His undergraduate years at the University of Florida were aimed toward becoming a surgeon, but his broad interests resulted in degrees in chemistry and zoology. Graduate studies earned him a PhD in electrical and computer engineering from Duke University. 


The world of business also fascinates him, again about how things work and why. This led to an MBA from Duke and work in the business world encompassing a diversity of functions from investment banking to bond underwriting, to marketing, to human resources, and more for major companies in these fields worldwide. While at Duke, Dr. Sund was an Industry Mentor to lead and grade Duke graduate students in practicums to help Fortune companies across external business and internal corporate strategies.


His hands-on business experience was especially valuable when working on behalf of Duke and N.C. State universities in a program to analyze inventions by professors in various fields. Dr. Sund conducted detailed studies of over 100 inventions for usefulness, practicality and marketability. This elegant mix of broad scientific backgrounds and practical business acumen yielded real-world analyses to determine how well these ideas could work and how they might be capitalized and marketed.


The common factor in these diverse endeavors is solving problems with the perspective of a company outsider combined with practical knowledge of both the science and the business issues involved. 


His constantly enquiring mind coupled with an unusual combination of skill sets led him to seek a problem that needed solving. That problem was the need for a way to measure blood flow accurately during major surgery. The current technology has been in use for some 40-plus years and is more than ready for an upgrade. In 2018 Dr. Sund launched Scinovia to provide that upgrade with VUFLOW which provides non-contact, real time, ongoing data for surgeons during an operation.

Crowdfunding 101: Scinovia’s Campaign is Live!

3 months ago

Scinovia Community,


Scinovia is revolutionizing the way doctors monitor the flow of blood during surgery. VU-FLOW is a non-invasive, unique imaging device that allows them to make better decisions faster, resulting in more lives being saved.


As you may have heard, we are currently raising capital via StartEngine’s equity crowdfunding platform!


In today’s update, I am going to cover everything you need to know about regulation crowdfunding and our mission at Scinovia.

Regulation Crowdfunding? What’s That?

Equity crowdfunding has provided a new alternative approach to funding a small business or startup. 


Rather than having Venture Capitalists or angel investors invest in your company in exchange for equity, you can take advantage of the crowdfunding method and raise money from thousands of investors who are willing to invest in exchange for shares.


In the past, accredited investors (networth of $1M+ or annual income of $200K+) like wealthy angel investors or VC’s held a monopoly over the massive wealth generator that is investing in startups and small businesses.


Thanks to Regulation Crowdfunding (Reg CF) and recent rules set in place by the SEC, everyday investors are now able to participate in owning shares in these types of companies, essentially democratizing startup investing for all.


In addition, Title III of the JOBS Act now allows private companies who are looking for shareholders to raise up to $5M annually, as opposed to the original amount set to $1.07M.


The JOBS Act has been an incredible benefit to capital markets. This law has provided smaller companies with an opportunity to raise funds and offer an ownership stake to more individual investors than before.

Scinovia is Set to Create an Impact

Scinovia’s research and development programs focus on improving outcomes for patients with heart bypass, cardiovascular procedures, and organ transplant therapies with our non-invasive blood flow diagnostics.


By making these diagnostics more accessible to those who need them, we reduce costly implications and even the risk of death, ultimately saving more lives.


Scinovia aims to revolutionize the market which did $500M in sales last year by replacing the outdated, 60 year old, contact methods of the past. We believe our VU-FLOW device will put us at the forefront of this market by providing the real-time, quantitative data that doctors have been yearning for.


The main problem surgeons face is knowing whether a procedure has poor blood flow or not, and Scinovia's Point-and-Image is the solution we've all been waiting for. 

Join Our Community of Early Investors Today!

Now that you know more about equity crowdfunding and what we’re trying to accomplish at Scinovia, we hope you will consider us as your next investment opportunity.


To join Scinovia as an early shareholder, head over to our raise page and invest for as little as $498.75.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our executive team and we will be happy to address them for you.


Thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to making an impact with you as our partner.



Warmly,

Jim Sund
