Anuncia, a medical device company and innovator in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) management, announced its plan to move its headquarters to Scottsdale.
The headquarters will be at SkySong, the Arizona State University Scottsdale Innovation Center. This location provides the company with access to research and development opportunities, as well as bioscience and healthcare talent. It also allows collaboration opportunities with local universities on new medical technologies that deliver safe and effective therapy to patients who suffer from life threatening conditions, like CSF disorders.
The relocation, which is the first geographic expansion for the Massachusetts-based company, will also bring a new management team of industry experts, who will engineer intuitive solutions that address unmet clinical needs.
Anuncia developed the ReFlow Ventricular System, which is used to relieve pressure on the brain cause by CSF. The ReFlow Mini earned the FDA Breakthrough Device Designation earlier this year, as well as an honorable mention in the health category of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas of 2021.
Elsa Chi Abruzzo, the CEO of Anuncia, said the excitement and support from the Scottsdale community shows a genuine investment in Anuncia’s future.
“As we grow and scale manufacturing, our need to expand operations into the Southwest has been met with impressive support from the thriving Greater Phoenix biomedical community, which is anchored by numerous medical centers of excellence, including the Barrow Neurological Institute, the Mayo Clinic, and Phoenix Children’s Hospital and various major universities,” Abruzzo said in a statement.
Abruzzo also announced the company will soon open its next fundraising round.
Anuncia plans to scale by hiring positions in engineering, clinical, manufacturing and finance.
Scottsdale Mayor David Ortega said the city is thrilled to welcome Anuncia into the city’s growing medtech ecosystem, and is ready to support the company as it creates life-changing medical solutions.
“Healthcare is one of the top industries in Scottsdale and SkySong is a hub for innovation, and I am confident that a rising industry leader such as Anuncia will find their new location to be a destination for ongoing and future success,” Ortega said in a statement.
