Your Health Startup Is Cute: Gotta Play at Scale
Sunday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM
110 E 2nd St
They're doing it wrong! Health care is broken! Disrupt all the things! It's fun to pontificate, but at a certain point, you've got to play at scale.
Some of the best innovation happens outside the traditional health care system. But many investors and advisers argue that to get paid, reach scale, or show efficacy, you need to learn to work within the system. If health care is becoming consumerized, does this still hold true? How do you innovate on the edges & then still find ways to claim value from the traditional system? What are the ways to work with the existing system without getting caught up in an outdated approach?
This panel is best for entrepreneurs & behavior change designers. Hear about successful tactics and frank discussions of expensive failures. Learn from a diverse set of panelists with experience in early-stage startups, the White House, healthcare.gov, a major insurance company, health tech investing and a company with a behavior change solution at scale.
