California startup millionaire moves biotech company to Ann Arbor area

Before turning his attention to medical devices, Everist made his first big splash in the entrepreneurial world when MongoMusic, a music-sharing site that he founded with college friends, sold to Microsoft for $65 million. According to the Free Press story, Everist said he moved to the offices in Pittsfield Township just south of Ann Arbor because he would have access to former Pfizer workers and technology developed at the University of Michgian.
