Under Warren’s leadership, ivWatch is on a pursuit to provide affordable and innovative technology allowing hospitals to improve the safety for their patients by reducing the risks associated with IV infiltration.

And it has been an exciting journey to see the growth of ivWatch over the past eight years,” says Warren. “Our employees are united by the common mission to advance patient safety and it’s rewarding to be at a stage where our product is at work in hospitals across the country.”
The State of the Startup Community Address is organized for the Hampton Roads business community to come together and reflect on progress throughout the year. Hampton-based ivWatch may be small with just under 40 employees, but the prospects are promising as personnel has more than doubled in two years. The company has a dedicated executive team and with increased research and development, sales force and marketing teams they are prepared for continued growth and expansion.
“The five finalists all embody the entrepreneurial spirit of our growing small business community,” says Zack Miller, founder of Hatch. “Gary’s a leader in the Hampton Roads business and entrepreneur communities and our members can look to him to see how an idea can become a company, and how passion can make a company competitive and successful.”
