Exciting things are happening in GI!  AGA recently announced the first investment of the GI Opportunity Fund is Virgo Surgical Video Solutions, located in Carlsbad, California. Virgo is an early-stage GI company whose development accelerated after participating in the 2018 AGA Shark Tank competition. Virgo provides GIs, clinical trial sponsors and trial site investigators with AI-fueled, always-on endoscopic procedure recording and patient recruitment tools for clinical trials in gastroenterology. Since launching, Virgo’s video capture, management and AI analysis technology platform has helped physicians capture over 400,000 endoscopy procedures. Learn more about Virgo’s journey below.
