Evansville, Ind. – Elevate Ventures portfolio company Curvo Labs, Inc. announced the acquisition of Ann Arbor, Michigan based Mendenhall Associates, Inc., publisher of Orthopedic Network News, late last week.
Curvo is a revolutionary clinical spend management platform that automates and modernizes hospitals’ and healthcare systems’ supply chains.
“This acquisition expands our clinical supply chain intelligence platform and gives our hospitals more of the tools they need to improve value for patients,” said Andy Perry, Curvo CEO.
Curvo is located in Evansville, Ind. where a recent entrepreneurial partnership between Elevate Ventures and the Economic Development Coalition of Southwest Indiana has been developed. This partnership, known as Elevate Southwest Indiana, has a long-term goal of developing a culture and infrastructure of sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship in the Southwest Indiana region.
To provide additional partnership support, Elevate Ventures is hosting Kinetic, a portfolio and partner conference which will take place May 1-2, 2018 in Indianapolis. Andy is a panelist at Kinetic for the “Stakeholder Communication That Counts” session. His leadership at Curvo makes him an ideal speaker as he shares his experience running a company, explaining what company boards, investors and strategic partners want to know. Attendees will also learn how to integrate metrics, milestones and stories in their updates to stakeholders.
