President and CEO of Actuated Medical, Inc. (AMI)
Maureen L. Mulvihill, Ph.D., President and CEO of Actuated Medical, Inc. (AMI), has been recognized nationally and internationally for her entrepreneurial leadership. She is an out-of-the box thinker that uses many sources of financing (e.g., Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR), Pennsylvania state economic development convertible-debt, personal monies, SBA and personal guaranteed bank loans, and Angel investment) to grow AMI. Recently, she was appointed to the AdvaMed Accel BOD to represent small emerging medical device companies. Her leadership style focuses on a strong corporate culture, team work and a vision of improving care for patients. She works with clinicians and strategic partners to ensure AMI’s products are viable in real-world settings. Over the last 11 years due to changes in the market, she has led the transition of AMI from a concept-prototype company to a fully-integrated medical device company that develops, manufactures and sells its own devices. Maureen is an alumni of the Goldman Sachs 10k Small Business program and has been a Finalist for the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year® Award twice. In 2015, she was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year by the CBICC. In 2016, she received a Bronze Stevie Award for Female Entrepreneur of the Year. In 2017, Maureen was a U.S. Delegate to the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Hyderabad, India. Most recently, Maureen participated in the NIH I-Corps and Capital One Catapult programs. She received her Ph.D. from Penn State University.
