Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Healthcare: Explore the process of the inventors, investors, and entrepreneurs bringing new development to market
Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is hosting a panel comprised of two leading-edge proponents of what’s new and next in healthcare, medical devices, diagnostics, and therapies plus two experts who will talk about encouraging, strategizing, funding and marketing new healthcare innovations. Learn what the next generation of healthcare innovation will mean to patients and investors. Healthcare as a category was nearly 18% of the U.S. economy last year. New technologies and techniques are being developed right now, as science and investment merge to develop new devices and markets serving the needs of healthcare providers and population in the cities as well as underserved geographies. Our panel of investors and innovators will talk about making new concepts into real devices and new startups into real growth companies.
Don’t miss this chance to hear their experiences and ask them questions during breakfast at Emory.
