Navigating large healthcare organizations
I have been on both sides of the table with healthcare start-ups. My primary role at NSLIJ and Cleveland Clinic was serving as the systems' front door for young enterprise-facing companies, helping them place the weight of the system behind them not on top of them. Now at Pager I'm the little guy, responsible for sourcing, structuring and closing partnerships with big healthcare incumbents.
Fund raising strategy
I've been on both sides of the table here, first as an early-stage investor and most recently leading Pager's fund raising with the founding team. We've raised $25m to date, including a $10m seed round and $15m Series A. I can help with everything from telling your story to where investors will call BS on your financial projections. Also adept at balancing smoke and mirrors with objectivity ;)
