This week’s news covers the story of a founder whose personal experience with miscarriage led her to create a startup that offers services addressing everything from fertility to family care. Her unicorn has also attracted investment from the likes of Oprah Winfrey!
As a Harvard & Oxford trained preventive medicine / public health physician, I’m passionate about helping Entrepreneurs create a healthier, happier world. As you’re well aware, entrepreneurship in the health sector is not that straightforward. Even giants like Google, Apple, and Amazon struggle sometimes. Should they stop? Are they best placed to innovate in the health sector? Personally, I feel they should continue their mission, as should startups and Entrepreneurs. There are plenty of problems to solve; the more minds paying attention to health, the better.
After speaking with and learning from Entrepreneurs, I created a short checklist that will help fast-track your health startup journey. It comes with a free masterclass, where I walk you through this checklist. I’ve essentially distilled 20+ years of international experience into this prescription for what I like to call Startup Therapy. If you have questions, or if I can be of any help whatsoever, feel free to join me in one of my weekly Office Hours.
However, if our journey together ends here, I’ll leave a few thoughts for Entrepreneurs and fellow changemakers:
- Not all problems need health tech or digital health, but used wisely, they can dramatically help inform prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.
- Not all problems are in healthCARE, so think of the wider social, environmental, occupational, and lifestyle determinants of health.
- Not all problems can be tackled here and now, so think of the life course approach, with innovation in early-life (the first 1000 days), and across all sectors.
