FOUNDER & CEO

Eric Sugalski

As CEO of Archimedic, Eric focuses on strategic initiatives, partnerships, and business development.

Eric started his career as a mechanical engineer - designing and building laparoscopic surgical devices, handheld imaging systems, and neonatal incubation systems. During his formative years in engineering, Eric became an expert in electromechanical design, analysis, advanced CAD modeling, and design for manufacturability and assembly (DFMA).

Eric grew into a program manager, where he learned other aspects of medical device commercialization - including clinical affairs, regulatory affairs, human factors, product marketing, manufacturing, supply chain, and sales. As a program manager, Eric led multi-disciplinary teams in the development of complex medical instrumentation, including patient warming devices, autoinjectors, electrosurgical instrumentation, and more.

In 2008, Eric accepted a part-time position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Lecturer in the School of Mechanical Engineering. In this role, Eric helped groups of mechanical engineering students work through the product development process through a hands-on, lab-based curriculum. While at MIT, Eric built relationships with professors, post-docs and MBA students that aimed to start-up their own companies based on the novel technologies being developed on campus.

In 2009, Eric started Boston Device Development, a contract product development firm aimed at helping early stage entrepreneurs advance their research into market-focused solutions. Fast forward through a rebrand, a merger, and another rebrand, and you'll find Archimedic - a business focused on helping innovators create life-changing medical devices. Eric continues to work with innovators in creating medtech strategies that meet technical, regulatory, clinical, and manufacturing milestones. 

Eric lives outside of Philadelphia with his wife, 3 kids, and 2 cats. During his non-working time, you'll find him outdoors, hiking, gardening, reading, and lounging at the Delaware beaches. He holds a Lecturer position at the University of Pennsylvania School of Bioengineering, teaching undergraduate students about medical device development and entrepreneurship. 

Eric holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado, Boulder. He also holds an M.B.A. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Business.
