MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (CitizenWire) — DesignWise Medical, a nonprofit pediatric device organization, announced today that it has appointed DealPen, a professional corporate development advisory firm to guide DesignWise Medical on growth and capital formation strategies. With DealPen’s leadership, DesignWise has established its Charter Campaign, a one-time sponsorship opportunity for individuals and organizations to join DesignWise Medical in developing appropriate medical devices for children and to become a permanent member of the DesignWise Medical legacy.
“I am excited to surround DesignWise Medical with industry professionals like Patrick Donohue and his DealPen team. DealPen’s corporate experience will help us execute our mission of developing appropriate medical devices for children,” said DesignWise Medical’s founder and Chairman, Brad Slaker.
One of the first activities of DealPen’s involvement is to steer DesignWise Medical’s Charter Campaign. To launch this campaign, DesignWise Medical is holding a series of open house events at their headquarters in NE Minneapolis. The first event was held on January 13, 2011 where a full house saw exhibits of current pediatric medical device projects and heard Mr. Slaker speak about plans for 2011. The next open house will be held January 27, 2011 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.
Patrick E. Donohue, founder and CEO of DealPen commented, “DesignWise Medical is a beacon of light to solving critical solutions for children’s unmet medical needs. Establishing a financial base from which DesignWise can achieve its goals is our top objective.” Donohue went on to say, “I have already had several friends comment that DesignWise Medical’s products in development would have been crucial in their own circumstances. I am proud to align DealPen with DesignWise Medical’s mission as DealPen actively seeks to give back to the communities in which we work and live.”
