The Kauffman Foundation Launches eBook Series for Healthcare Entrepreneurs
The Kauffman Foundation today launched an eBook series featuring insights from healthcare entrepreneurs who share their real-world experiences with other founders making their way in the healthcare space.
The inaugural eBook in the series, released today, addresses one of the greatest challenges for healthcare entrepreneurs: access to hospitals, patients or insurers.
The ongoing series will address topics that matter to healthcare entrepreneurs - approaches and solutions that will help break through to their customers (whether they're hospitals, insurance companies, patients or beyond). The eBook content is sourced from stories told every week on eMed, the home for healthcare entrepreneurship on the Kauffman Foundation's website, Entrepreneurship.org.
There will be a total of 12 eBooks in the series in 2014. Future topics include:
- Insights from Physician Entrepreneurs: Six MD entrepreneurs share their challenges, including those of being a physician entrepreneur.
- Insight on Early-Stage Fund-Raising: Early-stage entrepreneurs discuss the pitfalls, options and opportunities of fund-raising and partnering.
- Insights from medical device entrepreneurs: Medical device entrepreneurs talk about how they met challenges and opportunities on everything from team building to clinical and regulatory success.
- Lessons for fund-raising in digital health. Hear from entrepreneurs in the digital health sector about how they raised capital.
The series is available for free download here.
