Minova

By Katherine Bose, Robert Chess, Peter Reiss
2008 | Case No. E286
The protagonist (“Howard Glass”) is a recent GSB graduate (2007) heading up a biomedical device start-up focused on the gastric bypass market. The case tracks Glass and team from the team formation and idea generation phases through the company’s first 6-7 months of operation, as Minova burns through what little money it has and actively looks to close a seed round of funding.
