Through the course of this podcast, we have heard from many players in the healthcare ecosystem – payors, providers, technology companies and even the voice of the consumer. Today we will hear another important perspective and that is the view of the investor. Venture Capital and other firms fund healthcare startups with long term potential. In 2020 $17B was raised in healthcare venture capital alone.
Today we are going to hear from a gentleman that knows this space well.
