Spencer Jones - Lineus Medical
Spencer worked for 3 years in direct patient care as a Certified Nursing Assistant, Licensed Practical Nurse, and as a Registered Nurse. Frustrated with the inefficiencies plaguing the healthcare system, he was determined to play a role in improving the delivery of healthcare. In 2014, Spencer won the annual ARK Challenge, an Arkansas based business accelerator. The product he developed was a dual lumen peripheral IV called the BVAD, which focuses on painless and uncontaminated blood draws. While still working as a nurse in the clinical setting, Spencer identified another opportunity where improvement was needed around IV dislodgement prevention. This led to the birth of SafeBreak Vascular and the founding of Lineus Medical in 2015. Spencer graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor in the Science of Nursing. Spencer is on the Fayetteville Innovation Council and was the Entrepreneur in Residence for the Hub X Life Sciences Accelerator for 2016.
