Sandra Shpilberg, Founder & CEO of Seeker Health – July 18, 2019

Sandra will talk at this session about the state of the healthcare industry, which broadly encompasses any tool, service or product with which a patient may interact to seek a diagnosis or treatment, and the opportunity exists to bring technologies that are currently in adoption mode in other industries (tech, gaming) into healthcare.

Healthcare follows when it comes to tech adoption; it doesn’t lead. This presents the opportunity to take proven successful technologies adopted in other industries and bring them to healthcare in customized ways. It also presents the opportunity to find new technologies that increase the efficiency of the healthcare system. In this talk you’ll learn about:

  1. Healthcare as follower
  2. Buyer types and influence
  3. B2B business models that work

As well as: Exit Strategy – Making the most of a once in a lifetime opportunity to sell your business; Mindful startup – Key lessons for periods of high output and creativity.
