Sentio Named Among 'Michigan 50 Companies to Watch'


SOUTHFIELD — Sentio LLC of Southfield has been recognized as one of the 2013 “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch,” an awards program sponsored by the Edward Lowe Foundation and presented by Michigan Celebrates Small Business.

Sentio has developed a proprietary nerve-mapping device that allows surgeons to find nerves they cannot see, reducing the risk of nerve injury during surgery and making possible the use of more minimally invasive surgical techniques. “Safer minimally invasive surgery means less pain and faster recovery for patients,” says Dr. Stephen Bartol, CEO of Sentio.

Companies making it to the “Michigan 50 Companies to Watch” list are defined as having six to 99 full-time-equivalent employees and generating $750,000 to $50 million in annual revenue or working capital from investors or grants, these companies form the backbone of Michigan’s economy. Representing all regions of the state and a diverse range of industries, companies like Sentio are known for their exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, creation of innovation or use of innovation in creative ways, and their sustainable competitive advantage.

Winners were selected by Michigan-based judges from the banking, economic development, entrepreneurship development, industrial and venture capital communities. Sentio will be honored at an awards ceremony during the ninth annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business event, May 2 in Lansing.
