Meet the founder of GAUSS SURGICAL Sid Satish turned his idea for technology to improve the safety of women in childbirth into a multi-million dollar business. As a kid, Sid loved Lego, science fairs, and working on projects. His parents supported him by giving him early access to computers and software, and an uncle encouraged him too. “My uncle was a cool and super techy guy who helped me build an earthquake alarm.” So it was no surprise that Sid always wanted to study engineering and went on to study Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley. Although not a medical student, as part of his graduate work in the UC Berkeley Master of Translational Medicine program, he got to watch surgery for the first time. As part of his degree, he had to complete a team-based capstone project. Sid and a While the rest of us were watching funny cat videos on our mobile devices, Sid Satish was figuring out how to use their cameras and combine this with computer vision algorithms to save lives. Here’s his story and advice to you. couple of fellow students were paired with a doctor to generate ideas to solve real-world medical problems. Sid was fascinated by what he saw in the operating rooms, and his curious nature kicked in. Sid and his group began researching healthcare. He found out that in most of the world death from childbirth was going down, but in the USA it was rising due to complications due to hemorrhaging. “I started following two really great urologists around in operating rooms, asking a lot of questions.” This is when he realized how hard it was for medical professionals to accurately calculate blood loss in the operating room. “As I spoke to more doctors and nurses, it became clear this was an unmet medical need. The technology to combat this didn’t yet exist.” Sid believes viewing the situation with fresh eyes was an advantage. “I think I recognized the need in part because I wasn’t in medicine.” After he and other students pulled out their iPhones and started taking photos of the scrub tech’s instrument table, Sid asked himself “what if an app could remove the guesswork from surgical blood loss?” It was the right question. Sid’s fellow students and mentors completed prototyping and proof-of-concept work in 2011. They then decided that they had a great idea and believed in it enough to form a company: Gauss Surgical. However, the other two students went on to further studies, so Sid found himself in charge of starting up this new company. Three faculty members stayed on as mentors, and his father was also an important source of encouragement. “Dad mentored me greatly on the tech side.” Triton in use in the operating room

Sid also convinced Milt McColl, a very experienced medical device entrepreneur whom he had met, to sign on as first CEO of the company. This allowed Sid to build his vision for the technology, and he named the product Triton. “Mentorship is super helpful because you don’t need to continually discover everything on your own. Going to them with questions allowed me to think with a level of sophistication about the business that I didn’t have. I was leveraging their experience.” Sid tirelessly took part in pitching, talking to angel investors in bio design, questioning advisors, and hiring staff. To do this, he drew on his previous experience in a business plan competition. In his senior year at university, Sid applied his work on computational fluid dynamics to optimize the amount of whitening fluid for each tooth by creating personalized tooth whitening trays. Although Sid won this business plan competition, he realized he wasn’t passionate enough about the idea. But it was invaluable in preparing him for this next step of founding Gauss Surgical. From a little business incubator space in a building in Palo Alto, Sid worked hard to raise funding. He admits to having no money, and often “pulling all-nighters at the office.” He also found out how hard it is to get medical tech approval from the Food and Drug Administration in the USA. However, he kept pushing, and in a short space of time Sid had raised millions and was winning awards. In 2018, he won the Apple Design Award. “We initially used the iPad as a user interface and ran the algorithms on a server. Now the product runs on an iPad Pro with an infrared sensor and processes all images on the iPad itself.” In the same year he was named as one of the “30 under 30” in Healthcare by Forbes. In 2021, Sid sold Gauss Surgical to Stryker, a leading med tech company. “It was a privilege to build Gauss Surgical with a dream team, investors, and customers, but I knew a company like Stryker could take this product to a new level.” Sid is now VP of Innovation at Stryker. Sid has some tips for young people wanting to start a tech business. (Continued on page 12) Above and right: Triton in action in the operating room. Courtesy of Gauss

1. Get started - do it! One of the most rewarding experiences you can have is to start something new. You don’t need to wait until you have several degrees and lots of industry experience. Don’t let your inexperience stop you from starting something, but seek the experience of others early and often. Get as much experiential learning as you can. 2: Look to meet a need Focusing on a need that must be solved is much more important than the “invention” you may think you have. Rather than looking at tech in purely business terms, look at challenges we are facing and think of how tech can be used to solve them. 3: Ask lots of questions I was curious, and I started with a lot of naive questions. But I didn't let that worry me. If you ask questions, you will continue learn, and you will begin to ask better ones. 4: Research the market Do some work to understand and articulate this. Focus on the big picture and look for indicators that show you have an idea with commercial potential. Get validation from conversations with industry professionals. 5: Work on communication As a founder you’re going to have to get up and pitch your company. For me, debate in high school was a major step in developing my communication skills. A tech idea doesn’t end when you compile your code. It’s no good having an amazing invention if you can’t articulate your vision to others. 6: Learn how to network With ideas from class projects, do pitch competitions and business competitions. Schools and colleges often have these programs. Make connections from those. Get emails through startup fairs and list servers from the uni. Ask professors to make intros for you. Warm introductions are much better, but don’t be afraid to cold call. Stay in touch with people you meet. 7: Find great mentors Mentorship is super important because you learn faster from the mistakes and advice of others. Mentors helped me understand how the venture capital world works, that there are different phases of a company, and how each phase requires you to evolve as a leader. 8: Find balance Family, fun and travel can be sucked into the black hole of a startup. You have to find balance. You don’t have to work yourself to death. Yes, there are periods where you don’t take vacation time for a year, but you do need to be sure to take moments. I began to schedule something every quarter. Once I had wrapped up board results, I would take some time off. SID’S ADVICE FOR YOUNG FOUNDERS

Hill envisions a future in which ultrasound equipment can be sent to underserved locations with limited access to doctors and sonographers. The machine can be operated remotely to scan a patient from anywhere in the world. MCPHS at the Forefront of Healthcare Innovation Department Chair and Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Medical Sonography Jeffrey Hill, is part of a team building a tele-operative, robotic lung ultrasound scanning platform. The device will help mitigate the spread of infection between the healthcare provider and patients who have been exposed to highly communicable diseases such as Covid-19.

MCPHS students who graduate from our PharmD programs, for example, go on to work at a number of biotech startups in the Boston area. PillPack PillPack — one such Boston-area start-up founded by MCPHS alumnus TJ Parker - was acquired by Amazon in 2018. Parker, who followed in his father’s footsteps to become a pharmacist, workshopped the idea for PillPack during his time at MCPHS.

To o y o u n g t o s t a r t y o u r o w n B U S I N E S S? Devi Sahny believes the answer is ‘no’. Devi Sahny - Founder and CEO of Ascend Now. Now the founder and CEO of a successful Ed Tech company, Devi started her first business when she was 14. After attending a summer course on bead-making, she started a business selling custom jewelry. Her first client was her Dutch teacher, and then she went door-to-door selling her jewelry. Since then, Devi has built her business skills and made the Forbes 30 Under 30 - Asia - Consumer Technology list. Her company, Ascend Now, offers personalized academic and entrepreneurial tutoring to nearly 11,000 students across 13 countries. Her inspiration for this came from her experience as a teaching assistant in Economics at Georgetown University. Devi’s job was to offer optional revision sessions to students - but almost nobody ever came. However, once she said yes to a few requests to personalize her review sessions, things started to change. She found herself offering reviews in French, over the phone, and even next to a basketball court for a student who revised best while practicing! “I realized that students learn better in a personalized format rather than a large group format.” This power of personalizing education inspired her business ideas. spent at Goldman Sachs, but ultimately the work did not interest me - education always made me tick. Despite being often told that at 23 she was too young to own her own business, Devi wasn’t one to give up. “I'm a stubborn individual. I always liked doing things on my own terms.” It took Devi three tries to get approved for an Employment Pass visa in order to start her own business. “Any founder will tell you how many ‘no’s’ you will get before your first ‘yes’.” While waiting, for approval, Devi didn’t waste time. She met with parents and educators to refine her ideas about the company she wanted to create - one that focused on personalizing education. Devi says technology has been a huge amplifier. “It allows us to do what we need in minutes, even seconds. Technology has greatly helped to deliver access to education for students in various forms and modes.” As the CEO of an Ed Tech firm, you would assume Devi is a ‘techy’ person, but she says “Techy? Definitely not. I spent four hours trying to download books on my new, lateto-the-game Kindle. I also didn’t know Netflix could download movies for planes etc. But I’ve always had a problem-solving mindset. Systems, processes, categories - everything can be improved in the world. I like to make things better.” But it hasn’t been just technology and a network that has helped thousands of students thrive. Devi believes that the most important factors in a successful start-up are focus, hard work, some luck, and a persistent mindset. She also values mentors that she can turn to for advice. “I found partners that aligned in our vision and mission. These partners have experience, supported us, helped us improve, and helped us add strategic value.” When asked what makes a good company leader, Devi says, “empathy, inspiration, kindness, being team-oriented, and learning to adapt quickly. Also, being a ‘culture carrier’.” Devi’s advice for young people wanting to start their own tech company: • Serve others • Be good at what you do • Remember age is just a number. Start now! • Get to know yourself • Fail early • Learn, strengthen your mindset With this background, you would think Devi had always been a strong student, but she says not. “In middle school, I was one of the lowest performing students academically. In fact, I was asked to repeat a year. I wasn’t interested in the content.” However, in high school, Devi’s mindset changed and she began to channel her motivation and energy into school. “I worked hard; I don’t think I was one of those students who found school easy. I really worked for it.” Through this she developed grit, a work ethic, and discipline. Eventually, Devi became School Council President and, Valedictorian. Devi’s academic journey is the foundation of her company’s approach — empowering students to take charge of their learning while developing passion projects and improving soft skills. “Education feels linear. Life is the opposite of linear and kids know that.” And this is true for Devi. Looking back, she wishes she had reflected upon her strengths and a best-fit career. After graduating, Devi started a career in finance. “My biggest mistake was probably not starting Ascend Now right after college. I thought I needed “experience” in the job market before this. I am grateful for the time “ Serve others. Be good at what you do. Age is just a number. Start now!”

first electromechanical computer in the USA. It weighed 9,000 pounds and had over 750,000 relays, switches, and control circuits, connected with 500 miles of wire. It was the first computer that could solve any arbitrary mathematical problem. It could do three additions per second. Young Lieutenant Hopper was one of its first programmers, making top secret calculations to help with ballistic calibrations. She wrote the user manual for the Mark I computer. Coders in those days worked with ones and zeros, The gutted clock lay on its face, guts strewn across the table. The girl puzzled at the intricate pieces, meshing them together, trying to understand how they worked to tell time. Grace loved taking things apart. Grace Hopper (née Murray) grew up in New York City, just a few years after its residents got electricity. Fascinated by technical things, she applied to Vassar at 16 but was rejected for poor grades in Latin. Undeterred, she applied again a year later, was accepted, and earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and physics. Grace went on to earn a masters degree and then a PhD in mathematics from Yale. She taught at Vassar while she worked on her Ph.D. In 1943, Grace joined the Naval Reserves and was assigned to the Ordinance Computation Project at Harvard. She was part of a team working with a newly designed IBM computer called the Mark I. It was the punching holes in cards or paper tape to indicate operations to be performed and the data involved. Programs were designed for specific machines, and coding was tedious and error prone. Grace was frustrated as her team struggled to produce calculations essential to the war effort. She felt there had to be a better way. When the war ended, Grace left the Navy to join the Eckert-Mauchly Corporation. Their engineers were designing the first electronic computer. It was called the UNIVAC 1. As Director of Programming Research, she developed her breakthrough idea. Hopper believed programs could be written in plain language that people could read and then translated into Grace Hopper A legendary computer pioneer the code a target machine needed. Tested pieces of code could be saved in libraries and then linked together as needed. The translator which would do this, a program itself, was called a “compiler”. In 1952, Grace wrote the A-0 (Arithmetic Language version 0) System, one of the first compilers, which translated mathematical formulae into machine-readable code. She built upon her experience to later help develop COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language), which became the dominant language for business applications and is still used today. Her work made computers accessible to people without engineering or math backgrounds. The Navy recalled Grace to active duty in 1967 to serve as Director of the Navy Programming Languages Group. She was promoted to Captain in 1973, and retired in 1986 as a Rear Admiral, the oldest serving officer in the Navy. Grace Hopper was a trailblazer. One of her favorite quotes was, “a ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are for. Sail out to sea and do new things.” She received over 40 honorary degrees and numerous recognitions including the National Medal of Technology and (posthumously) the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the USA’s highest civilian honor. As a role model for women and minorities in maledominated fields, Grace Hopper encouraged risk taking. This is why she is still often referred to as “Amazing Grace.” Paper tape program for the Mark I Unknown Photographer (Smithsonian Institution) - Flickr: Grace Hopper and UNIVAC
