Michigan Pre-Seed Capital Fund
Blaze Medical Devices was initially formed as a Michigan LLC in 2006. For the first few years, its founders focused on developing its core technology, as well as establishing relationships with leading research hospitals eager to find a solution to the problem of the unquantifiable loss of quality which blood experiences during storage. While there was already a debate about whether “older” blood was less effective than “fresh” blood, Blaze advocates that blood’s age is merely one of several factors contributing to its loss of efficacy.
