From emerging company to sponsor

By Michelle Barson, KeraVet Bio Staff

Last year at this time, the KeraVet Bio team was hard at work on our KC Animal Health Corridor Summits’ Emerging Company Presentation after being chosen as one of ten “Emerging Company” presenters.  This fall, we’re coming back as sponsors and will be eager to promote our recently launched product.

KeraVet Bio was incorporated in March of 2022, and we will be launching our flagship product, KeraVet Gel, into the animal health market this August.  While it may look like this was a fast and easy process – it wasn’t. Our parent company, KeraNetics, has been working in the human medical space for about 14 years and currently produces two FDA-cleared wound management products.  These products have been used for several years in clinical settings across the country.

Having a parent company that has already fine-tuned the technology, is prepared for scale-up, and has successfully navigated the FDA has been the secret to our quick progression.

Most of our focus today through August will be around cataloging early clinic interest and working with our distribution partners in preparation for getting KeraVet Gel to your doorstep.  We’re looking forward to sharing more details when we attend this year’s KC Animal Health Summit as their Coffee Bar sponsor.

The Summit is hosted in the Animal Health Corridor of Kansas City, which received its name based on its significant animal health industry concentration.  Animal health companies continue to locate or network there as the Corridor offers a uniquely supportive environment for early-stage entrepreneurs in the animal health, nutrition, diagnostic, and technology industries.

The KC Animal Health Corridor now represents 56 percent of total worldwide animal health, diagnostics, and pet food sales.  Learn more about the corridor (specifically anchored in Manhattan, Kansas, and Columbia, Missouri) here.

Join us in Kansas City August 28-29, 2023!  Take part in the excitement of animal health innovation and experience multiple days of networking, 1:1 business partnering, industry thought leader panels, and emerging company presentations.  Registration opens in May.  Click HERE to register.
