"A Perfectly Fine Place to Start" - Dr David Tuch - CEO, Lightpoint Medical

by Benedetta Biffi
Industry Seminar – tue 24 March 2015, 6pm

Abstract: How does one go about deciding whether to start a medical imaging device company? When is the best time to start a company and how does one go about it? What are some of the common pitfalls and how can they be avoided? What effect will the sweeping changes unfolding in the healthcare sector have on early-stage medical device companies? We’ll answer these questions and perhaps a few others.
