Innovation and Business Accelerator

FOCUSED on Launching Great Cardiovascular and Social Good Impact Companies

super brief history
Super brief history
  • Leonhardt Ventures founded in 1982. Has since raised $145 million that has been invested in the development of over 28 innovations and companies. 21 direct Leonhardt patents and over 70 acquired or licensed patents or technologies.
  • 1982-1985 – Built dozens of cardiac cath labs & ICUs around the world.
  • 1986-1994 – Developed world leadership in polyurethane balloon cardiovascular catheters.
  • 1995-1998 – Developed world leadership in stent grafts and percutaneous heart valves.
  • 1999 – 2008 – Developed world clinical leadership in stem cell repair of damaged heart muscle.
  • 2009 – Launched Leonhardt’sLaunchpads Life Science Incubator.
  • 2008 to 2012 – Developed world leadership in the development of electrical stimulation for stem cell therapies.
  • 2012 – Launched Cal-X Stars Innovation & Business Accelerator.

Leonhardt Ventures’ Cal-X Stars Business Accelerator, Inc.Presenter: Howard J. Leonhardt, Founder, CEO1531 6th Street, Unit 401, Santa Monica, CA 90401Office Direct 310 310 2534

  • Elevator Pitch = All star team with over $14 billion in previous exits is launching an unprecedented portfolio of breakthrough technologies focused in two clear areas (1) cardiovascular and (2) social good impact. Cardio disruptive technologies include the first stem cell recruiting heart pacemaker, the first biological pacemaker, two revolutionary heart pumps, the first implantable stem cell pump, the first stem cell therapies for heart failure treatment, the first wireless energy device for directing stem therapies non-invasively and the first stem cell recruiting women’s bra. The social good impact portfolio is anchored by The California Stock Exchange – the first conscious capitalism stock exchange duly designed to aide life science and other growth cos to bridge the gap from friends and family financing to a NASDAQ or NYSE IPO.
  • One of a kind stand out technologies driven by proven team.
  • FOCUSED on the launch process where the greatest equity is available at the least cost = best FOCUS for investors.
unmatched on two fronts
Unmatched on two fronts
  • Cardio - Heart failure is the leading economic drain on the U.S. healthcare system today. Our technologies are destined to cut these costs by more than one half. 50 million people are set to die from heart failure this decade. We expect to save more than 30 million lives. NO other technology rebuilds scarred heart with living cells like ours does, the way hearts are built in the first place. The combined R&D pipelines of Medtronic, St. Jude, Boston Scientific and J&J do not come close to match our pioneering patented portfolio in this space.
  • Social good impact – The California Stock Exchange, the first conscious capitalism stock exchange, is not just a stock exchange it is the leading engine of innovation and job creation and re-boots U.S. economic leadership for this century. 23 million new U.S. jobs on the way, not just any jobs but jobs people love! About to prove that doing good is not just good for good sake but is good business. For the people that believe in this they now have a home marketplace.
current pains to the customers
Current Pains to the Customers

Heart Failure = Leading economic drain on U.S. healthcare system. 50 million about to die in next 3-5 years worldwide without a better solution. No current therapy addresses underlying problem of recovering heart scar tissue post heart attack.

Social good impact financing = NYSE, NASDAQ, VCs, Formal Angel Groups all fail to meet the financing needs of life science and other social good impact cos. years 3 to 9. It takes 9 years for a good co these days to get to a NASDAQ IPO up from 3 in the early 1980’s. Most life science and other social good startups run out of seed financing by about year 3. VCs and angel groups increasingly want to see revenues before investing. The FDA approval process has lengthened to more than 5 years to get approval for any major new breakthrough technology.

our solutions
Our Solutions

Heart Failure = We are the only ones that have developed and patented a reliable way to convert heart scar tissue into new living pumping muscle which allows heart failure patients to recover.

We are leaders in muscle stem cells, SDF-1, electrical stimulation, nutrient hydrogel, implantable stem cell pumps, wireless energy for growth factor release and stem cell recruitment and differentiation, perfusion improving heart pumps. We are the only ones with the complete solution. We pre-treat the scar, treat the scar with stem cell transplantation creating new contractile muscle and post treat the area to maintain and build on original muscle growth. No one else comes close to a complete solution. Where others are tapping out at 53 meters improvement in a patient’s exercise capacity we are expecting over 200 meters improvement, or better.

our solutions1
Our Solutions
  • Social Good Impact Financing – A new stock exchange with new rules…
  • Holistic analysis of companies including innovation culture, R&D pipeline, morale, sense of vision and purpose, long term commitment.
  • No day trading.
  • No short trading.
  • Emphasis on promoting local investing.
  • Greater transparency.
  • Less volatility.
  • A place where doing well by doing good will become the norm rather than the exception.
market strategy
Market & Strategy
  • Heart Failure Market
  • 50 million patients and growing.
  • Current cost > $150,000 ea annually to care for.
  • We will cut this cost by more than one half.
  • Cost to produce $5000. Reimbursement $58,000+
  • We will create, make and sell. Our primary strategy is to win the prime time podium at the major cardio meetings by winning support of the opinion leaders. We have done it before and can do this again.
market strategy1
Market & Strategy
  • The California Stock Exchange
  • Over 1 million great U.S. social good impact and life science seeking better financing options.
  • Over 1 billion potential investors worldwide that believe that the better future is… one where companies that treat people and their communities well win and take their investors along on this win.
  • The current cost of an NASDAQ IPO is $2.3 to $4.8 million. We will cut this range down to $40,000 to $450,000.
  • Investors are on a roller coaster ride on Wall Street with the over emphasis on short term quarterly net profits at all costs including cutting R&D and people. We will get them off this roller coaster.
  • The current financing systems favor men owned enterprises over women owned 95:5. We will end this gender gap and gain the support of 50% of the world’s population in the process.
  • We will prove with solid data that treating people and communities well with a product with a true sense of purpose is not just good for good sake, but is good business. Companies with this conscious capitalism model will attract the most talented members. This will foster innovation and superior customer service. This leads to happier repeat customers which leads to more reliable steady returns for investors. For the people that believe in these principles this will be their home marketplace. We will attract a whole new class of investors in the marketplace.
  • Heart Failure
  • In-direct = Medtronic, Boston Scientific, St. Jude with pacers = only 16 meters improvement.
  • In-direct = HeartWare, Thoratec, Cardiac Assist, Abiomed with mechanical artificial heart pumps – they do nothing to repair problem they only allow pts to live temporarily with problem. Low quality of life.
  • In-direct = All CHF drug manufacturers. $8 billion is spent ea yr on these drugs. Their performance is minus 4 meters decline in exercise capacity.
  • Direct = Mesoblast, Cytori, Aastrom, NeoStem, Cardio-3, Osiris, Capricor. None of these cell types can grow new contractile muscle in scar tissue. All of them are one dimensional incomplete solutions. Their best result is 53 meters improvement as a group. Osiris with allogeneic bone marrow comes in a 10 meters.
  • We have achieved 95.7 meters improvement already in Phase III trials and animal data indicates we should be to over 200 meters with SDF-1 and repeat delivery alone and we are adding many more enhancements with the new generation of developments.
