The healthcare community is full of people that care. The founders we work with have self-selected the hard path because it actually makes a difference. It’s easy to be inspired every day when you are surrounded by people who measure success not just by commercial traction, but by the impact on the quality of clinical care for patients that deserve to live a long and healthy life.
