“Since we service the startup industry primarily, most of our client companies are in the Bay Area. The Bay Area is one of a handful of hot areas for medical technology development in the country, if not the world, so we don’t reach out to the international opportunities. Still, they sometimes find us. We are doing work for companies in Japan, Israel, and France. However, the majority of our business is with local companies.”

- Jeff Christian, CEO, Phoenix DeVentures Inc.
