  2. Is there still room in healthcare for more stakeholders?

    Watch out, Doc. Emboldened venture capitalists have fresh ideas for how to practice healthcare using algorithms instead of thought.

    “Will Silicon Valley’s Confident Technologist Investors Save Healthcare?” by David Shaywitz, contributor, Forbes, June 22, 2013

    In describing his opinion of the poor state of US healthcare and how to fix it, Chamath Palihapitiya, a former Facebook executive and founder of the venture capital firm Social+Capital Partnership, tells Forbes: “The software is crap, the services are crap, the people are crap. So there is a lot of value that people like us can add because you have a very different perspective on how the system should work.”

    Silicon Valley venture capitalists with clever algorithms and lots of money look forward to helping us perform dental procedures for anxious patients – some of whom are also difficult to numb.

  3. A New-Wave Entrepreneur

    I have been involved in the highly competitive “for-profit” healthcare sector for two decades. Yet, I am familiar with business innovation and economic incubation in the larger public university educational ecosystem.

    For example, I’ve led business start-up and planning presentations at the Georgia Technology Advanced Development competition in Atlanta; including Triangle Technology Park NC; and the Whitman School of Business Management in Syracuse NY. Funding was achieved for technology and educational access initiatives that were deemed most viable, efficient and profitable.

    Similarly, over the past 18 years, venture capitalist Steve Jurvetson has heard thousands of pitches. And so, I am delighted to provide this link.
