Two San Antonio companies were selected earlier this month as being among the "10 most promising" life science technology companies at the Texas Life Science Venture Forum in Houston.
The two San Antonio companies selected were BiO2 Medical Inc., a medical-device company, and EO2 Concepts, a wound-care company.
Venture capital investors who invest in early-stage life science companies made the selections after listening to business plan presentations. Investors considered quality of management, the investment opportunity, market size and the need and the problem solved by the company.
BiO2 Medical is working on commercializing a device called the Angel Catheter, which is designed to prevent potentially fatal pulmonary embolisms by trapping blood clots before they reach the lung.
EO2 Concepts has developed a device that provides a continuous supply of pure, low-dose oxygen to treat wounds.
