BUFFALO, NY -- Circuit Clinical’s Founder and CEO, Dr. Irfan Khan, was one of the thirteen entrepreneurs selected this year by Endeavor, the world’s leading community of high-impact entrepreneurs, as part of their Virtual International Selection Panel, joining the global network of 2,188 entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs who are selected demonstrate high growth and impact within their prospective industries. The International Selection Panel is the final step of a precise multi-step selection process to identify entrepreneurs who have the potential to leverage Endeavor’s resources and mentorship to create large-scale wealth and jobs. These entrepreneurs also display their commitment to reinvesting their time and money in their local entrepreneurship ecosystems to help others succeed.
"Irfan embodies all the qualities of an Endeavor Entrepreneur," noted John Somers, Endeavor WNY Board Chair and President & CEO of Harmac Medical Products. "He's leading an innovative company that's clearly demonstrated its path toward disrupting a very large market, he's all-in on growing our entrepreneurial ecosystem and he's poised to leverage Endeavor's unique slate of services as Circuit Clinical hits a major inflection point."
Dr. Irfan Khan was initially nominated by Endeavor WNY, which is a nonprofit organization that supports western New York founders and companies that have demonstrated potential for significant expansion and scale. Endeavor WNY identifies and selects impactful entrepreneurs within the western New York region and provides them access to Endeavor Global’s network to help expand their ventures into enterprises that can propel the local economy and community.
"What a pleasure it's been to work with Irfan and the Circuit Clinical team through Endeavor's selection process," said Alan Rosenhoch, Endeavor WNY Entrepreneur Selection & Growth Manager. "Now the real fun begins. Circuit Clinical is extremely well-positioned to realize value from Endeavor's fully curated services around capital, talent, mentorship, and new markets - all laser-focused on helping the team execute on its ambitious plans for rapid scale."
As part of Endeavor’s network, selected entrepreneurs gain access to comprehensive, strategic, global support services, including introductions to local and international business mentors, investors, and volunteers from Fortune 500 consulting firms who will help them address their needs. For Circuit Clinical, these opportunities will greatly benefit the company as they continue to expand their network of sites and physicians.
Circuit Clinical has been successful in growing both size and financial strength. Recently, the company has welcomed an industry leader to their executive team, launched a new national network of physicians, was awarded Fast Company’s Best Workplaces for Innovators, and completed a $7.5 million Series B fundraise, including a strategic partnership with Labcorp, a global life sciences S&P 500 company.
