„The Future of Medicine“: Physician and Health Innovator Dr Daniel Kraft participates in the Medical Entrepreneur Startup Hospital (M.E.S.H) camp for startup businesses. On 10 September, entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet the scientist live and in person in Berlin.
What does it take to be a successful startup business that is technologically disruptive? At M.E.S.H, Daniel Kraft, who founded many businesses himself and has done some pioneering work in the fields of medicine and technology, will provide founders with inspiration for their battles on the startup field. In his 30-minute speech he wants to stir things up a bit and enter into discussion with the audience – live contributions and best practices included. And there will be enough time for questions, too. A true health clash, infusing all participants with fresh ideas.
Daniel Kraft looks back on 20 years of experience in clinical practice, biomedical research and healthcare innovation. He chairs the Medicine Track for Singularity University in California, USA, and is the founder and executive director of Exponential Medicine. The programme connects biomedical and technological faculties of international standing to explore technologies with exponential growth in the health and medical sector. In 2013 he was recognised as one of the most inspiring leaders in life sciences by Pharma Voice 100.
“I’m very much looking forward to seeing Daniel in Berlin – after all, he doesn’t exactly live around the corner,” says M.E.S.H organiser Frank Antwerpes. This year’s M.E.S.H camp is taking place for the second time. In the field hospital, founders from the healthcare industry will be given first aid to nurse financial wounds and mend any startup damages. In 1:1 mentoring sessions, participants will receive treatment to make them fit for the healthcare market. They will be drilled in the fields of foundation practice, marketing, financing and special healthcare requirements.
