2014 Pacific Cup

The founding of a startup venture and it's path forward as it pursues its mission is in many ways like embarking on a long ocean voyage - one can visualize the destination but not all of the challenges and surprises along the way. The importance of assembling a strong committed team/crew is shared by both endeavors, as well.  In the case of TriVascular, whose mission is to improve patients' lives through the advancement of medical device technology, the challenge of disrupting legacy thinking (e.g. 'disease progression is inevitable and not the byproduct of legacy device designs') was also faced by the great explorers such as Magellan and Columbus, who conclusively revealed the true shape of the world.
