Atlanta’s medical device industry is never short of innovative ideas, but to succeed companies also need sufficient funding, strategy, and industry connections. TAMM Net, established in 2009 by Arthur Spalding, is a resource that specifically caters to those needs. The consulting firm conducts clinical trials, negotiates regulatory applications with the FDA, gains reimbursements, and helps companies to maximize their sales in the federal market.
We caught up with Arthur to get more information on TAMM Net and see what resources in particular they provide to startups.

How does ATL weave into your story?
We are based in East Cobb. When I moved here I saw the growing medical device industry and realized that reimbursement would play a larger and larger role in the commercialization of these products. That observation led me to found TAMM Net and begin consulting with many ATL start-ups and established companies. We now work with companies across the globe, but focus on the research conducted right here in Atlanta.
What services do you offer?
