InCube Ventures is led by Mir Imran, a prolific medical innovator and company builder. Under Mir's leadership, InCube Ventures has access to ventures formed by InCube Labs - a multi-disciplinary research lab that has been a highly productive source of medical device companies. Mir and InCube Labs have formed 20 companies over the past 25 years, creating a series of multi-billion dollar markets along the way.

Mir now holds more than 200 issued patents and is perhaps most well known for his pioneering contributions to the first FDA-approved Automatic Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator. As an entrepreneur, Mir has founded more than 20 life sciences companies; 15 of his companies have seen "liquidity events" (IPO/Acquisition). Mir's expertise spans a wide range of clinical areas from interventional cardiology to chronic pain, obesity and CNS disorders. Mir actively collaborates with the nation's top universities on research and development including Stanford, Rutgers, Johns Hopkins, UTSW, etc. Mir also founded InCube Ventures, a life sciences venture fund, where he has led investments in a range of promising ventures. Mir sits on Boards of several life sciences companies. He holds an M.S. in bioengineering and a B.S. in electrical engineering from Rutgers. He also attended CMDNJ/Rutgers Medical School.
