How to Engage Corporate Stakeholders in Healthcare

Mar 13, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Smart healthcare stakeholders (health systems, vendors, & payers) know that, if left untouched, the growth of their core business lines will eventually stagnate. In this talk, Chris Coburn and Erin Trimble will discuss how healthcare incumbents are creating new partnership paradigms in the form of corporate venture and innovation arms to engage with startups and explore new avenues for growth. Coburn and Trimble will discuss what they look for in early stage companies, offer insight into how they partner with the next generation of innovators, and reflect on how strategic investment differs from VC—and why it should matter to entrepreneurs.
