Symple Surgical Graduating from Moonshot at NACET with Honors
Symple Surgical, Inc. is graduating from the Moonshot at NACET entrepreneurial program and relocating to Flagstaff Airport Airpark. The medical device company, which has been a client of both the city’s business incubator and accelerator programs since 2015, will quadruple the size of its office and manufacturing space, from 1,800 to 7,200 square feet.
“Not only are we graduating, but we are graduating with honors,” said Daniel J. Kasprzyk, president and CEO of Symple Surgical, Inc., (SSI) and Poba Medical. Poba Medical was founded in 2016 as a second company to supply SSI’s need for catheter devices and intricate balloon assemblies. “We have created a business idea in under two years, proven the business model, grown strategically and now will scale to meet the overwhelming global demand for our products and services,” he added.
“First we were in the incubator, then we moved into the accelerator, and now we’ve outgrown the accelerator,” said Kasprzyk in an exclusive interview with Flagstaff Business News. “If all [Moonshot at NACET] clients did that, there would be hundreds of jobs in Flagstaff that are not dependent on tourism. Success should be measured by jobs and money brought into the community.” READ MORE HERE.
