Equities: Robert tell me about Biosculpture, which we will call BST going forward.

BioSculpture Technology, Inc. is a commercial stage medical device manufacturer developing a patented and prototyped minimally invasive device for the endoscopic removal of visceral or “belly” fat as a new treatment of obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus. We believe our method and device will save lives, improve life outcomes, and significantly reduce healthcare costs.

Equities: Tell us about the size of the market

Robert: 2/3 of the population is overweight and 43% are forecast to be obese in the next few years. US Health reports there are 2.1 Billion people suffering from obesity around the globe and obesity costs will exceed $2 Trillion. Also know that 80% of type 2 diabetics are obese; diabetes mellitus is the leading cause of renal failure needing dialysis and a frequent cause of blindness. Obesity doesn’t just shorten your life, but it lessens the quality of it.

Equities: What is the specific market where you are having a disruptive effect.

Robert: Obesity medical device expenditures exceeded $1.4 Billion in 2014. McKinsey Global Institute forecasts the obesity market to reach $17 trillion USD by 2030. There is an enormous unmet need in developed countries and a large potential in lower income countries due to the cost-effective nature of the device for a minimally invasive treatment of obesity which is safer and highly effective. There are roughly 20M diagnosed type 2 diabetics in the U.S. alone. Diet and Exercise seldom works for the long haul.

Equities: Explain what is the revenue opportunity for you and investors



Robert: Visceral or “belly” fat not only causes sleep apnea and gastric reflux but secretes the cellular hormones that are responsible for all the complications of obesity – diabetes, hypertension, vascular disease, strokes, heart attacks, autoimmune diseases, and cancers. Patented and proprietary methods and devices have been prototyped and are being tested. We believe our device is distinct from and superior to all current or experimental therapies because there is no need to cut into the stomach or bowel, rearrange the alimentary tract, leave behind a foreign body, or be limited by a weight loss plateau. We have been granted three (3) U.S. patents ( (8,348,929B2, 8,465,471B2, 8,574,223) on both method and the device and numerous other patents are pending. Following the successful completion of the current equity offering, we expect our device to become Initially commercially available for “tissue and fluid aspiration, including body sculpting and liposuction” under a 510(k) and after regulatory approvals are obtained and clinical trials performed, subsequently to be promoted as a treatment of obesity.

Equities: The management team at smaller companies is critical, tell us about your team

Robert: I founded the Company and my training is as a Cornell-trained physician founder (see his LinkedIn Here Robert L. Cucin, M.D.) as a serial medical technology entrepreneur who invented this technology and acquired a Columbia MBA to serve as its CEO. His experience includes his being an IP attorney who has successfully licensed his early patents to companies such as Mentor and Ethicon. Its CFO, Deborah Salerno has over 25 years of experience as an investment banker in taking company public, SEC filings and PIPES. The team also has a full complement of technical, clinical and regulatory expertise.

Equities: What is you funding and exit strategy.

Robert: We have a qualified tier 2 Regulation A Offering for $5,000,000 as an active IPO and plan to apply for OTC-QB listing in Q2 2017. The use of proceeds will include completion of prototype development and obtaining preliminary FDA and European Union approvals.
