3 Key Points

  1. Everything in healthcare moves slow, especially with the current pandemic. Although this may be the case, there are still people like Justin and companies like GSR Ventures that aim to innovate healthcare technology, as well as provide a better quality of life for both healthcare practitioners and patients.
  2. If you have an idea and want to start a company, figure out what stage you’re at. Starting a business is all about the execution of ideas, the hard work you put into it and finding someone who’ll invest in your vision.
  3. Approaching interested investors isn’t like what you see on TV. The most important thing is getting your idea out there and getting everybody on board - you simply need to get to that first investor.
