BioSig Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: BSGM) (“BioSig” or the “Company”), an advanced digital signal processing technology company delivering unprecedented accuracy and precision to intracardiac signal visualization with its proprietary PURE EP™ System, today announced the appointment of new Advisory Board member Edwin Wang.
Mr. Wang has over 20 years of impactful experience in private equity, venture capital, merchant banking, and family office investing. He is the founder of Accretive Capital Partners LLC, a pioneering direct investment sponsor in middle market private equity that raised, invested and harvested a top quartile secondary direct investment fund, Accretive Exit Capital Partners LP, with seasoned limited partners HarbourVest Partners, Goldman Sachs Vintage Funds, and Paul Capital Partners. Accretive Capital Partners has advised in excess of $2 billion in portfolio and fund restructurings.
Earlier, while at predecessor affiliate Asymmetry Capital LLC, Mr. Wang led the successful financial restructuring and liquidation of $1 billion in venture capital portfolios from Zero Stage Capital whose legacy spawned a forerunner to Moderna. These accomplishments were chronicled in several Harvard Business School case studies and other publications, including The Deal Magazine. Previously, following an eight-year investment banking career at Credit Suisse and Lehman Brothers, he led the formation of Asia Corporate Partners Fund, among the very first institutional direct investment fund products for China anchored by CalPERS, CalSTRS, Capital Group, China Development Bank (Taiwan), (whose core holdings included Hon Hai Precision (Foxconn), Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and Texas Instruments/Acer) along with other leading global asset managers.
Mr. Wang earned his B.A. in Economics from Columbia University and was a Visiting Fellow in Finance at the MIT Sloan School of Management at the invitation of the late Nobel laureate in Economics, Dr. Franco Modigliani.
“Edwin Wang is a highly regarded and well-connected investment strategist with many years of experience in global capital markets, including a storied record of success in private equity growth capital and technology investing,” said Ken Londoner, Chairman, CEO and Founder of BioSig. “He will be an excellent resource for our capital markets strategy and targeted expansion of our shareholder base. We warmly welcome Ed to our advisory team.”
“Ken Londoner is a seasoned entrepreneur who blends strategic vision, technical brilliance and solid execution – a rare combination in the intersection of finance and industry – and I am excited to help support him and the team at BioSig “ said Edwin Wang “Over the past quarter century, I have made numerous investments in technology enabled healthcare companies, several of which have had a profound impact on medicine and public health. (Cardiovascular disease has been the leading cause of death for too long with annual direct costs in the U.S. alone estimated to be $109B*.) BioSig Technologies leads the way forward in digital signal processing and AI for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. I am humbled to be a part of this critical mission to improve patient outcomes and save lives!”
