Presenters: Sherman Leung & Emory Griffith
Healthcare organizations consistently land at the top of the list of Boston’s largest employers. Healthtech is a fast-growing sector that presents opportunities for innovative business models and products as well as many unique challenges.
This session is meant for product-oriented entrepreneurs and product managers who want to learn more about the intersection of healthcare and product - the unique challenges of building products in healthcare, and strategies for success. We will present our points of view as healthtech PMs and facilitate a discussion to swap insights and learnings from across Boston and different industries to help support the growth and development of products in a space that desperately needs them.
Sherman is currently on the product team at PatientPing, and has built and shipped digital health products at Mango Health, Muvr Labs (a YC/StartX med grad), and as a student-entrepreneur-in-residence at Greylock Partners. He writes regularly about healthcare + product at http://medium.com/@skleung
