Fighting to Keep the Next Medical Invention Alive at Imua Services

Share Article

Great medical invention ideas that are potentially life saving for millions die every day because they're not funded or lack a solid plan to be developed into a product. Find out how one woman is changing that with her new company, Imua Services, because her own life has been saved by ideas that were turned into products.

"Many of the inventors and entrepreneurs I talk with have great ideas that could save lots of lives and I know it's my mission in life to help them." - Meghan M. Alonso (Founder and CEO)

The lifeblood of a medical invention is often the single inventor or post-doc. These entrepreneurs are driven by a passion to make life better for thousands of people, unfettered by the shackles and bottom-line thinking so common in the corporate world.

Sadly, the majority of these ideas die because they lack funding and a a solid development plan. While VC's, angel investors, and incubators can fill some of the gaps, few inventors have the time, knowledge or connections to properly utilize these options.

Meghan Alonso saw this pattern repeated far too many times during her years in providing product development services. She knows first hand the hard work and the challenges these inventors face getting funded and on the market and she's been hard at work ever since creating Imua Services, a consulting service designed to guide the inventor, entrepreneur, or post doc from idea to successful launch.

"Many of the inventors and entrepreneurs I talk with have great ideas that could save lots of lives and I know it's my mission in life to help them. That starts with the guidance, insight, and inspiration they need to raise funding and scale these products for commercialization. I help them with every step along the way." -Meghan M. Alonso (Founder and CEO)

Education is backbone of Imua Services.

Free resources include a podcast and video trainings featuring interviews with industry experts, stories from successful medical device inventors, and inspirational tales from the patients who have directly benefitted from a medical invention.

After providing guidance on business set up and designing a plan that will attract investment, Meghan connects her clients to the right development partners for every step of the process of turning an idea into a finished, marketable product.

What drives Meghan to help these unsung heroes? As an avid surfer, competitive college gymnast, and world class salsa dancer, she’s a product of medical innovation herself. She has a prosthetic left eye , an anchor in her left hip in addition to other medical challenges. She's never let any of that hold her back and wants to give back to medical innovation. Her chant throughout life is "IMUA" which is a Hawaiian word meaning to “advance forward with passion despite rough waves”.
