We’ve been amazed at the response to Innovation4Alpha, our investment-focused podcast that we launched a few months ago. With that in mind, it was time that we went back to the drawing board and came up with a podcast that tells the other side of the story — that of the startups.
Introducing The Health Halo. Each week, AngelMD SVP of Professional Relations Mark Mescher will sit down and talk to an innovator who is helping to shape the future of healthcare. Here’s the explanation from the host himself:

In this episode, Tobin and Dr. Ross sit down with Dr. Ronnie Mimran. Dr. Mimran is a graduate of UCLA and the USC Keck School of Medicine, and completed his neurosurgical residency and spine fellowship at the University of Florida. He earned his Cornell MBA in 2018. He is a board certified neurosurgeon in active practice in the Bay Area, and serves as the team neurosurgeon for the Oakland Raiders.
One of the greatest strengths of AngelMD comes from our pipeline of investment opportunities. Today we are sharing one of them with you. Each hand-picked Premium Syndicate offering must meet rigorous standards, but VICIS is one of the strongest offerings we’ve ever had. The AngelMD community has invested in this cutting-edge sports helmet company in the past, and we’re excited to offer an opportunity to be part of the VICIS success story.
The story of VICIS started at the University of Washington. Sam Browd, a Pediatric Neurosurgeon, believed that sports-related concussions and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) needed better solutions. Dr. Browd partnered with a leading engineer and an executive with extensive medical device experience to form VICIS.
For the past three years, VICIS has been named the safest helmet in football as measured by the NFL and the NFL Players Association. The company has 28 NFL teams, more than 200 NCAA programs and 1500 high school programs using its ZERO1 helmet this year.
The VICIS success story is evident through its sales. Demand for the ZERO1 helmet, and for forthcoming VICIS products continues to grow. The balance of 2019 will focus on football. In 2020, the company is launching into hockey with direct involvement from leaders like Wayne Gretzky and Brett Hull. The company also plans to expand into lacrosse, soccer, and even military applications. 2021 will begin the expansion into new categories.
This is a great opportunity to invest in a company and a product that is directly responsible for the first notable improvements in concussions and subsequent cases of CTE. This AngelMD Premium Syndicate is raising a minimum of $2 million in a convertible note in advance of a Series C round. To date the company has raised $85 million.
