Medtech Startups Off the Beaten Path: Telescrypts

TelescryptsOne of Telescrypts's locations is a U.S. site in Phoenix, AZ, but the company has an international focus.

Its wireless sensor, worn on the wrist, gathers patient vitals, which are then accessible on a mobile platform and stored in the cloud. The company is piloting the technology in Africa. Omron Blauo is the company's CEO.

Q: Why did you choose to locate in Phoenix? 

A: The growth in Phoenix is quite impressive, and the talent from the valley has been exciting for us as a company. Phoenix is focused on being the most generous community, and it can truly be felt as we connect and grow quickly. 

Q: What are the pros and cons of being outside of traditional medtech hubs?

A: By not being in a traditional medtech hub we have more of an opportunity to receive greater resources from the community due to there simply being fewer companies with a focused mission. This in consequence also means there are fewer mentors, advisors, and companies to readily seek advice from.
