Most entrepreneurs need outside funding at some point during the company life cycle. Fundraising is often one of the more challenging areas of building a company and possibly even more so in healthcare innovation. On top of that, the lifecycle in healthcare can be very different from other verticals. If you are in pharma or medical devices, development is long and uncertain. Your innovation may require clinical trials and FDA approval so you will be needing much higher investments and have to plan for much longer pre-revenue time periods. Early funding often comes from angel investment groups, but what do angel investors look for in healthcare innovation?
Join us as John Paulos talks about the Central Texas Angel Network’s (CTAN) interest in healthcare innovation, what drives angels, what the group is looking for, the benefits to your company and how you can best prepare yourself for an application.

Digital health is one of the most explosive areas of innovation with software products aimed at wellness and medical applications. Depending on the intended application, software may meet the FDA’s definition of a medical device and be subject to an extensive set of FDA regulatory requirements. Therefore, Developer Beware! It is critical for innovators to know early in the development cycle whether their software is or is not a medical device and, if so, what regulatory requirements apply so they can accurately plan the time and cost to market. Recent actions by the FDA and Congress in the last two years have dramatically changed the regulatory landscape for digital health products.

The healthcare environment is constantly changing, and provider organizations must adapt in order to survive and thrive. Organizations are frequently asked to respond to legislative changes, market fluctuations, safety concerns, and patient or staff demands. The success of major change implementation hinges on how it communicated and how it impacts individuals and processes in the organization. Stakeholders frequently resist change for many reasons, including not having enough information, fear of how the change will affect them, comfort with the status quo, and not understanding the benefits of the change. For change to truly be effective, a leader must know how to effectively communicate the benefits, minimize the barriers and describe the processes. Learn from your peers as they share approaches that were successful and those that impeded the change process.
