About Elaine

I'm a plastic surgeon by training, board certified in Brazil. Before embarking in entrepreneurship a couple of years ago, I practiced in private practice as a plastic surgeon, conducted research in academia and managed healthcare facilities as a hospital administrator. After graduating from business school in 2010, I moved for good to SF Bay Area, where I worked at Kaiser Permanente as a business consultant for the medical group and then wore multiple hats at AllCells, LLC, a small biotech company that supplies human tissue and cells and services for drug discovery companies.

WRI is my second startup. The first one was put on hold for several reasons, which allowed me to dedicate 110% to finding market needs in the wound care space and developing a product that will meet those needs. Feedback on initial prototypes from potential users has been very encouraging and we are set to deliver an MVP in the summer of 2017. The company is bootstrapped, and I plan on outsourcing software development to a developers agency. Seeking a co-founder to join the company as a CTO (full-time or part-time) to help vet outside developers, oversee their work, help launch the product, and maintain it later. If interested in learning more, please ping me, would love to chat : )
