The Regenstrief Institute will host another meeting of the Indiana Chapter of the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) on August 15, 2019.
“SoPE presents an opportunity for Regenstrief to connect and innovate with a community of leaders interested in converting evidence into good business practices,” said Regenstrief Manager of Business Development Chris Frederick. “By bringing industry to the table alongside providers and researchers, we can make a difference in healthcare.”
The August meetup of the group will focus on themes in the recently published book, “The Titanic Effect”. The book explored how to avoid failure in life science startups. Healthcare entrepreneurs will also tell stories of their ventures and the icebergs they encountered.
The event will feature a panel discussion with contributions from two of the three co-authors of the book, Todd Saxton, PhD and Kim Saxton, PhD. During the discussion, experts will share lessons learned from their own experiences and provide guidance on how to avoid common causes of business failures. The meeting will also include networking opportunities for all attendees.
SoPE is a global biomedical and healthcare innovation network with membership open to all healthcare professionals, entrepreneurs and industry stakeholders. The Indiana SoPE chapter was cofounded and is co-chaired by Dr. Todd Saxton and Paul Szotek, M.D. In the March meeting hosted at Regenstrief, the group discussed the ramifications of artificial intelligence in healthcare.
