Volare, Inc. was founded with the vision of leveraging decades of experience in contract design, development and manufacturing to improve the medical device startup model. Volare was established to accelerate development timelines, streamline business activities, align incentives and maximize value for life changing medical device technologies.
Volare partners with entrepreneurs with novel technologies, forming joint ventures with aligned vested interest in success. Each joint venture leverages Volare’s infrastructure to reduce upfront costs for the product development process, facility, quality system, etc. By aligning incentives for all stakeholders (founders, employees, investors, strategic partners) we can more efficiently develop novel technologies while maximizing value for acquisition in a compressed time frame. Volare’s focus on design for manufacturing saves development timelines and reduces cost on potential manufacturing transfers to strategic acquisition partners.
