6 Questions with Morari’s Jeff Bennet of gBETA Medtech

Tags: , , , , , , ,

gener8tor, a nationally ranked accelerator program, has partnered with Boston Scientific to launch a healthcare-focused program in Medical Alley with additional support from the University of Minnesota and Mayo Clinic. Their first cohort wrapped up in June and the second cohort was announced in July.

Over the next few weeks, we will profile the second cohort of companies.

 

What does Morari do?

Morari is an early-stage medical device company that is developing an external device for the treatment of premature ejaculation (PE). Grounded in basic science and clinical study research, the Morari concept is intended to be a transdermal-based product using neuromodulation as a means of inhibiting the nerves of the penis, thereby delaying an ejaculation.

What difference does this make for patients?

It restores confidence in male sexual health by eliminating the embarrassment and frustration of PE.

What motivated you to take on this issue?

PE is the most prevalent male sexual dysfunction, estimated to affect 30 percent of men worldwide. It has a higher incidence than erectile dysfunction or an enlarged prostate, yet men rarely talk about it or seek treatment. We hope to create awareness for this medical condition and provide a better treatment option.

What did you do before starting this company?

I served as the Director of Marketing at IMRIS. Overall, I have over 20 years of sales and marketing experience with Vysis/Abbott, Medtronic, American Medical Systems, Boston Scientific, and IMRIS.

How can the Medical Alley community best support your work?

Continue to support events that bring together experts in the field on medical devices that are willing to help others. Also, generating awareness of sexual health and forums that provide discussion on this topic will help the overall community be more accepting of these conversations.

And finally, why participate in gBETA?

Starting a company can be a very intimidating process for someone who has never done it before. Being a part of gBETA, you are in an environment with others in the same position. These companies and individuals are a great resource for support and ideas on how to succeed. Also, the gBETA team has worked with hundreds of companies and can offer tips and tricks on what works and what doesn’t.
