Innovation requires partnership
Pictured above: Energizing Health brought VP Joe Biden and Dr. Biden to SXSW 2017 for the Connect to End Cancer event produced by Energizing Health for MD Anderson, AT&T, and Merck. Two dozen startups met with the event founders, and eight lucky startups got the help of VP Biden to accelerate their development.
Large Healthcare Companies face growing challenges meeting the complex needs of their growing populations effectively and efficiently – even with access to the best experts and technology. The size and complexity of their institutions oftentime limit their ability to develop new innovations “in-house” or identify external to new talent and technology.
Successful Startups, on the other hand, are often “lean” and quick to “pivot” when innovating and must be quick and accurate to solve problems. They often lack, however, the access and resources to partner with large health providers.
Energizing Health creates a community and culture that bridges the differing sizes, cultures and priorities in order to accelerate collaboration
