NAVi Honoured With Leadership Award From Melbourne Business School
The Melbourne Business School, in partnership with the University of Melbourne, awarded the NAVi team the "Alumni Award" at the Leadership Dinner event in Melbourne, Australia.
The Melbourne Business School Dean, Professor Ian Harper, honoured NAVi at the event in light of its work on developing the neoNAV, a catheter tip confirmation device that will help reduce the high misplacement rates of central line catheters in neonates; "The School would like to recognise [NAVi] for the inspirational success of your new endeavour in paediatric medical technology with the presentation of the Alumni award ..."
NAVi CEO Alex Newton accepted the award on behalf of team NAVi, and was thankful for the support and guidance the school and university continue to offer in NAVi's pursuit of improving the standard of neonatal care; "It takes a lot of work to transform an idea factory into a revenue-generating business, and I am thankful for the continued support of the alumni and faculty of the Melbourne Business School."
NAVi was formed out of the 2016 Biodesign and Innovation course, which is a joint venture between the Melbourne Business School and University of Melbourne, and is designed to bring together biomedical engineers, MBA's and clinicians to help identify and solve an exiting and current medical need.
