Ask me about: Patents and licensing, company formation, fundraising strategy, are we working on the right problem/need? Anything health care-related to technology, workflow, or regulatory questions (device, service, software, or pharma/biotech-related). Anything startup related (even outside of health care)-sales marketing and commercial strategy, founder issues and stock, tax treatment and incentives. Investor strategies — VC and angels. Corporate partnerships and sponsored research — relationships with all key people in nearly every fortune 500 medtech company. Pretty much anything throughout the startup journey from initial formation to series B fundraising <$20M
