The world of healthcare is changing rapidly, and we must be at the forefront of exploration as well as evolution.
In order to maintain a sight line on this changing world, Trudell has created Barvest Ventures Inc. which supports companies in healthcare that are leading the charge to change the landscape. We seek out these companies rather than having them come to us. We currently have investments in a number of companies across a range of categories.
The following is a summary of some of the companies:
