X2 Biosystems selected as a “2015 TiE50 Winner”

X2 Biosystems, Inc. is excited to announce that it has been selected as a “2015 TiE50 Winner” in the prestigious TiE50 Technology Awards Program. Winners were announced on Friday, May 15th in Silicon Valley at the organization’s annual entrepreneurial conference, TiECon. John Ralston, X2’s CEO, commented “It is immensely rewarding to be selected as a “2015 TiE50 Winner.” The data being gathered from X2’s wearable impact sensors and neurocognitive assessment tools is profoundly changing our understanding of how to diagnose, manage, and in many cases even reduce the incidence of concussions in athletic, military, and industrial environments. I would like to thank all of our employees, development partners, customers, and investors for their many important contributions to this success.” “TiE50 has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide. We screened 2716 companies this year and announced the most innovative 160 companies as 2015 TiE50 Top Start-ups. This pool of the very best-of-breed was then subjected to another round of rigorous judging to select the ultimate 50 winners proudly carrying the 2015 TiE50 Winner recognition. A star attraction of the conference is the presentations given by executives from the TiE50 companies themselves, each sharing their vision with VCs, Angel Investors, Senior Executives of Silicon Valley’s largest and hottest tech companies, tech bloggers and media, and many of the world’s most creative entrepreneurs and business minds. Audiences are treated to amazing ideas and innovative technologies,” said Ram K. Reddy, the program chair. “TiE50 is unique in terms of the technical and geographic breadth of the companies that are considered and the rigorous selection process that these companies are then subjected to. As a large global non-profit organization, TiE is able to assemble a group of 60 highly accomplished domain experts, senior executives, accomplished and experiences venture capitalists, and tech entrepreneurs who come together to serve as the TiE50 screening and judging team,” said Venktesh Shukla, President of TiE Silicon Valley. TiE50 has achieved an enviable track record since its inception, with more than 90% of TiE50 Winners closing a funding round within the first year. About 120 of these companies have already exited.

Comprehensive, end-to-end concussion management.

The wide range of impairments to cognitive, motor, and sensory functions that can result from concussions and related head injuries, often coupled with additional emotional and behavioral symptoms, now lead to over $80 billion each year in the USA alone for direct medical treatment and loss of productivity.

Founded in 2010, X2 Biosystems’ goal is to provide effective and economically viable concussion safety solutions for the tens of millions of young athletes who benefit in many important ways from participating in sporting activities, the millions of active and reserve military personnel who defend us, and the millions of other athletes, industrial workers, and civilians who are exposed to a wide variety of impact-related concussion risks. Today, X2 has emerged as a global leader in developing and deploying solutions proven to:

  • MODIFY BEHAVIOR in a manner that significantly REDUCES THE INCIDENCE, RISKS, AND COSTS of concussions in athletic and military environments
  • LOWER THE RISK of undiagnosed cases
  • DECREASE THE LIKELIHOOD of multiple impact injuries
  • MORE EFFECTIVELY MANAGE injuries when they do occur
  • SUPPORT COMPLIANCE with concussion safety laws & regulations.

X2’s scalable end-to-end concussion management platform delivers the complete continuum of care now being demanded by consumer healthcare, amateur and professional sports, military training and combat, and industrial safety markets, by integrating:

  • Wearable, cloud-connected impact monitoring devices for real-time tracking of exposure to and injuries from head impacts
  • Tablet-based neurocognitive assessment tools for baseline and post-injury assessments of neurocognitive performance
  • Wireless communications and cloud-based data storage, analytics, and reporting to support and document remove-from-play decisions, recovery and return-to-play readiness, and monitoring of long-term neurocognitive health and safety.

Product ease-of-use, together with successful lab and field testing, have attracted marquee customers that include major professional North American sports leagues, NCAA athletic departments, state and national high school athletic organizations, the US Army, sports medicine clinics, and international rugby organizations.
