Large technology companies have been expanding their footprint in the healthcare sector through venture investment and partnerships into early stage healthcare companies. Often seeking technology with a significant software component, many of these groups have helped to fuel the massive growth that has been seen in the digital health space in the past few years. From patient monitoring devices to mobile 3D imaging devices the lines between pure tech and healthcare are slowly beginning to blur as healthcare providers continually look to improve care while lowering costs.
Moderated by Michael Greeley, General Partner, Flare Capital Partners, the panelists are:
- Iana Dimkova, Senior Associate, Healthcare, GE Ventures
- Lucian Iancovici, FACHE, Head of Qualcomm Life Fund, Qualcomm Ventures
- Rich Wilmot, Head of Corporate Venturing, Philips
- Ying Tam, Head, Digital Health Cluster, Venture Services, MaRS
In this session, a number of investors at these large firms will discuss their involvement in healthcare innovation ecosystem. What types of technologies they are interested in? How much data do they like to see pre-investment? What problems in the space are they looking to tackle? These questions and more will be answered at RESI on Jan 10th so if you’re looking to partner with a large tech company for your product this is a panel you don’t want to miss.
