Leadership

Valencia is led by Jeff Greiner, who built Advanced Bionics (AB) from seven engineers and no revenues into a company with 2,500 employees and revenues exceeding $300 million. AB was sold to two different companies for over $3 billion—final sale in 2010. Board Member and Architect of eCoin, Dave Peterson, led the design of Medtronic’s first dual chamber ICD; won every major technical award given by Medtronic; and then was recruited by Greiner to design AB’s spinal cord stimulator. This product, now sold by Boston Scientific Neuromodulation, for which it paid AB shareholders $2.5 billion, will generate over $500 million in revenue this year for Boston.

CEO’S STATEMENT

Peripheral stimulation with eCoinTM will have a positive impact on the following conditions: overactive bladder, heart failure, hypertension, depression, Parkinson’s Disease, and osteoarthritis of the knee—among others.

The clinical testing necessary to demonstrate eCoinTM’s positive impact takes relatively little capital.

The first application of eCoinTM is overactive bladder where the underlying science is solid, the unmet needs of the patients large, and the feasibility data excellent.

eCoinTM is protected with over 30 issued US patents, several issued international patents, and at least a dozen other pending patents.

The business and technical leadership of Valencia is unsurpassed within the field of neuromodulation. I am humbled by the words of those who have worked alongside me in the building of Advanced Bionics. See testimonials.
