We all know how much impact tech and innovation can have to improve - and save -people’s lives when applied to the healthcare system.
However, innovating and launching new products in such a highly regulated environment may pose extremely daunting challenges. Strict regulation makes it difficult to have full interactions with patients or clinicians undermining the quality of customer discovery.
The approval processes can be long and complex since most of the times require multiple pilots therefore, increasing the time to complete market validation.
Moreover, not differently from any large and structured organisation where mistakes are not an option, we may face a sensible resistance to change.
But still, founders are succeeding. How do they do that?
How could they apply Lean Startup fundamentals in the healthcare industry?
We will have three speakers sharing their experience and point of view, including a representative from the NHS, late-stage startup and an early-stage startup.
