Sterling’s firm helps clients develop their medical devices and get them to market. He works with both large companies, like Johnson & Johnson, and very small ones just getting off the ground, he said.
“We’ve helped early-stage startups with grant applications, doing things like providing letters of support,” noted Sterling. The firm also provides free analysis to help create a project plan that helps young companies understand the costs and regulatory hurdles they might run into. Sterling has worked with businesses that have websites and apps in the medical device category. Sometimes the company acts as an angel to partially fund a startup that has an idea it believes will scale.
