Expert Advice for Others Looking to Solve Real Problems within Healthcare [18:44]
Dr. Grant emphasizes the importance of identifying the problem you’re trying to solve, understanding who your customer is along each stage of the healthcare journey, mapping out any timing intricacies, and flagging any areas you may need to lean on others’ expertise for. Having a pulse on your partners, competitors, differentiators, and market opportunity are essential to success. The other missing piece - having people on your team who think differently than you do.

Dr. Grant notes that all startup projects face different sorts of resistance as part of the learning curve.
