Starkey’s Genesis AI is Honored as a 2024 BOLD Award Finalist

Eden Prairie, Minnesota (March 7, 2024) – Starkey is proud to be named a BOLD Award finalist by the Minnesota Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). Starkey was recognized at the annual gala for its industry-leading Genesis AI hearing aids. The BOLD Awards honor the innovative and inspirational organizations that make Minnesota great, as well as the teams behind the strategies that led to remarkable performance and accelerated growth.

“This award is the product of a team effort and I want to thank the Starkey family for all of the hard work and dedication that made this possible,” said Starkey Chief Hearing Health Officer, Dave Fabry, Ph.D. “This well-deserved recognition helps us continue to raise awareness about hearing healthcare and tear down the stigma associated with hearing loss. Together, we’re helping people not only hear better, but live better.”

When Genesis AI was introduced a year ago, it marked a new era for Starkey while setting the standard for premium plus technology. It was all-new everything, including all-new sound, delivering over 80 million automatic adjustments per hour to give patients unrivaled sound quality and ease of use. In addition, the all-new Starkey Neuro Processor features the industry’s most advanced processor technology, which mimics the function of the central auditory system through an on-chip Deep Neural Network accelerator. With the introduction of exciting new features like Edge Mode+ and motion-based optimization just weeks ago, the next generation of Genesis AI continues to exceed expectations and helps patients hear clearly in more situations.
