About Avive:

Avive Solutions, Inc. ( is a VC-backed healthcare technology company that is developing a next-generation Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and response system in an effort to – literally – save lives. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death in the United States, and we are on a mission to change that! We are a dynamic team that builds elegant, creative solutions to solve complex problems. Ultimately, our mission is for all cardiac arrest victims to have rapid access to life-saving defibrillation.

Avive is taking a fresh approach to addressing this decades-old problem by working to bring an advanced AED technology to market, coupled with a first-of-its-kind software platform solution to enable a quicker and more streamlined response to cardiac arrest emergencies. We believe that this unique combination of deploying advanced – yet still accessible – hardware, and novel software, has the potential to revolutionize out-of-hospital cardiac arrest response and massively impact SCA survival rates.
