Areas of Expertise

  • Founder Sales

    The first few sales for any start-up are critical, and in healthcare often require unique structures. I've spent a lot of time thinking about, designing, and implementing strategies such as early commitments, selling before product is complete, and using early customers as investors, product partners, and validators

    • Sales Strategy
    • Partnerships
    • Equity
    • Direct sales
  • Cap Table Decisions

    Company formation & early hires are a critical time to set the foundation of your team. Too often, founders and early team members are conflict-adverse, settle for "even" equity split or are most generous to the squeakiest wheel.

  • Channel Strategies

    Technology innovation in health can take many paths to market. Employers, plans, hospitals, physician practices or consumer. As your business scales, you can sometimes select a few, but at the early stage you often have to chose your beachhead, and the choice is critical. I've spent the last decade as an advisor, investor & entrepreneur helping shape those decisions
