“Belmont U Startup” Gets Series A Financing

Jeff Cornwall, Prof of Entrepreneurship and writer of The Entrepreneurial Mind blog, provides an update on one of his former MBA students. From Jeff’s blog:

Congratulations for Pathfinder Therapeutics, Inc. (PTI), a medical device company focused on the development of “surgical GPS” systems for the abdomen, announced that it has closed on a Series A financing. Everyone in Nashville is excited that this company will be growing right here where the technology was born.

We at Belmont are particularly proud about this announcement as Dr. Jim Stefansic, COO of Pathfinder, is an alumn of our Massey School MDA program! It was a pleasure to be able to work with Jim on this project in its early stages while he was a student in my classes.

Great to see that students are taking the knowledge gained on campus (not to mention the great talent, such as Jeff Cornwall) in order to launch new firms. Congrats to PTI and Belmont U.
