Brio Device preps to begin generating revenue in next year

The evolution of Brio Device is gaining momentum as the University of Michigan bio-tech spin-out grows and prepares to commercialize its technology.

The company's team of four people are working to bring to market the SmartAirway, a new tool that improves the efficacy and safety of emergency intubation. The start-up spent its first year working on product development and creating prototypes. That work will start to come to fruition later this year.

"We believe we will have a product on the market in less than a year," says Hannah Hensel, CEO of Brio Device.

Brio Device won the Best of Bootcamp at the Ann Arbor SPARK Entrepreneurs Boot Camp last summer. It is also looking to graduate from the TechArb, a business incubator for U-M students, this year and move onto another business accelerator in Michigan. One year from now, the start-ups expects to be generating revenue, have its own office and begin hiring.

"We expect to double our employee base," Hensel says.
