Startups are great…for everybody!

August 31 2014

Startups are great…for everybody! Startups re-energize, change perspectives, create new value propositions, raise the bar for incumbents, challenge conventions and better the systems. And so starting up, though exciting can be challenging, even unnerving at times. Perhaps more so in healthcare where age old practices and value systems need serious rethinking and pushing back. Its not easy, but no change has ever been..and that’s what drives this new kid on the healthcare block.
