KALAMAZOO — Southwest Michigan’s legacy in the life sciences industry and the area’s strong talent pool led  accuFD Inc. to set up shop in Kalamazoo.

The life sciences startup that’s commercializing devices for use in so-called liquid biopsies views Kalamazoo as having a “very strong scientific and entrepreneurial talent pool,” said CEO Paul Neeb.

Setting up accuFD’s headquarters in Kalamazoo is “driven by the ability to attract world-class talent to successfully execute the plan,” said Neeb, a veteran executive in the industry locally.

“Ultimately, in my opinion, companies land where they land because of people,” he said. “I’m here as the CEO and perhaps, even more important, we believe this is a location that we can attract the right talent we’re going to need to develop the product and get it to its first commercial version, and then all of the sales and marketing items we will need to execute on as the company begins to grow.”
