ScrubStorm LLC is a cloud-based marketplace where clinicians, investors, companies and contractors go to collaboratively brainstorm, develop and commercialize solutions for unmet medical needs.
The web platform allows clinicians to post problems they encounter in their practice and either propose a solution or open up the problem to companies or individuals. When ideas are generated, others can review and critique them after signing a confidentiality agreement. An investor can then fund an idea and suggest additional resources for product development. Then, a company can license and commercialize the product.
