Crossing Over: The New Guard of Healthcare

Monday, March 16
3:30PM - 4:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 203-204
110 E 2nd St

This panel will provide a robust discussion around the experience/journey of entrepreneurs from non-healthcare backgrounds into the highly regulated healthcare industry. We will focus on why they made the leap and explore the benefits and challenges of crossing over to healthcare, while establishing best practices and setting targeted expectations for first-time founders in the digital health space. The goal is to extract insights from entrepreneurs who have extensive experience in health care innovation and to share those learnings with new and growing cohorts of developers and professionals who are joining the digital health movement.
