R3 Stem Cell
In 2012, Doctor Greene was at the Arizona State University’s WP Carey School of Business completing his MBA. ASU has consistently been ranked #1 in the country for entrepreneurial innovation, and David’s story is right in line with that.
He created R3 Stem Cell as part of a class assignment, complete with a business plan, proforma, legal analysis and opinions from several key professors at the University. According to Doctor Greene, “The resources at ASU are immense, and they really cater to those trying to engage in new technology efforts. Especially when it has the potential to change so many lives.”
In 2013, the fictional company became real after Greene received the legal analysis and realized he could do it. Since then, the company structure has changed several times, but now includes 38 nationwide Centers of Excellence that have performed over 11,000 regenerative procedures. R3 also offers provider training workshops, and is the ONLY nationwide company to achieve IRB Approval for its umbilical cord regenerative cell therapies.
R3 Stem Cell has produced a Consumer Guide for patients along with several hundred educational videos and participated in an acclaimed stem cell documentary, where Doctor David Greene was extensively interviewed about regenerative therapies in addition to researchers from Stanford, UC Irvine and other prominent institutions.
“I can’t count the amount of success stories we’ve seen over the years. You can see the Success Stories on our web presence, and now we’re collecting data under the IRB.”
