Initially, we knew we would need a partner to help us successfully navigate the process, concept to commercialization. We found that partner in GCMI.

Piedmont Healthcare

GCMI was instrumental in our early development including prototyping that led to a product candidate we could take into clinical trials. We used their space, cleanrooms, equipment, and personnel to help develop and validate our product candidate and its value.

Clearside Biomedical

We are still engaged with GCMI to this day. We utilize GCMI for our office space. We work with the team constantly on GloShield’s development and by osmosis, we continue to learn.


These are fundamental steps for any company going through acceleration. The fact that we are making these plans indicate significant progress resulting from our work in the GCMI accelerator.

Ares Health

GCMI was incredibly flexible with us. We could essentially be a la carte with their services, such as design, machine shop, software, and documentation. This was ideal given that, like many medical device startups, we had a limited budget and only needed certain services.
