Rainbow Medical: Entrepreneurial Efficiency in Medical Devices

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

One of Israel's most prolific medical device entrepreneurs, Yossi Gross has launched an amazing number of companies in a wide array of clinical spaces. Two years ago, Gross and GlenRock Israel came up with the idea for Rainbow Medical, a new approach to creating companies around the technologies Gross develops. Rainbow is neither quite a venture fund nor a US-style incubator but has aspects of both. Rainbow's point: too many fledgling device companies have to spend their time raising money rather than developing their technology, while the founders have little experience in doing so or in building the company once capital comes in. Rainbow's innovative investment-fund strategy addresses both issues.
