HEALTHCARE

Healthcare Sales Cycles: Hear from the Experts How to Sell and Get Paid: Whether it’s providers or payers, healthcare enterprise sales cycles seem interminably long. Why? Certainly healthcare is not lacking for innovation or both inside and outside forces pushing for change. Learn from stakeholders on both sides of the table about how to sell product to a big customer. Panelists will also discuss how they think about the shifting financial landscape in healthcare as we move from volume to value. These reimbursement dynamics are significantly impacting who pays for care and the incentives that different groups have to keep patients healthy. Healthcare start-ups are increasingly helping their customers bear healthcare quality and outcomes risk, sharing in the financial upside of successful results.

Panelists:

  • Jon Pearce, CEO and Founder, Zipnosis
  • Randy Gaboriault, CIO/SVP of Innovation and Strategic Development, Christiana Care Health System

TECHNOLOGY

Valuation Creation via Disruption
Hear from a panel of successful entrepreneurs who are challenging the status quo to build exciting new businesses. Merriam-Webster defines Disruption as “interrupting the normal progress or activity of (something)”. Disruption creates opportunity and can come in many forms: i) challenging the current regulatory or legal environment, ii) breaking existing business models and iii) new technologies such as virtual reality, drones or driverless vehicles. But disruption does not always come easy or without resistance, but then again the stories wouldn’t be good if they were easy.

Panelists

  • Nader Elm, CEO, Exyn Technologies Inc.
  • Abi Mandelbaum, CEO Youvist

Pick A Table, Pick A Topic
Entrepreneurs need a wealth of knowledge and resources to grow.
Sit down with our IMPACT 2016 experts and discuss a variety of topics including: legal fundraising; office space leasing; equity compensation; intellectual property; valuation; PR; and social media. After you absorb new strategies, pick another topic and rotate to another table.

HEALTHCARE

Healthcare Investing – Past, Future, and the Entrance of New Investors: By most accounts, healthcare investing is at or near an all-time high in 2016. Biotechs continued to IPO in the first half of the year even as tech unicorns sat on the sidelines. Venture investing in digital health companies barely paused as investors in other sectors pulled back following market trembles in late 2015 and early 2016. And more new investors have entered U.S. health investing, including “corporates” – ranging from traditional healthcare players like provider systems to general tech companies like Nokia – and overseas players particularly from Asia, who are looking to bring U.S. technologies to foreign markets. What is the cause of this strength and we should we expect for 2017? Are these new investors a flash in the pan or here to stay? Hear the panelists talk about the current landscape of investors, their insights from recent market developments, and their outlook for the year ahead.

Panelists

  • Aaron Flink, Principal, McKesson Ventures
  • Andrew Goldberg, Chief Operating Officer, HealthVerity, Inc.
  • Matthew Kane, Chief Executive Officer & Co-Founder, Precision Biosciences
  • Spence McClelland, Partner, Noro-Moseley
  • Bill Slattery, Partner, Private Transactions, Deerfield

Moderator
