S8 E06 – Orthopaedic Moonshots
Welcome to the DOCSF Venture Desk lead by Dr. Nancy Lynch!
In this episode, Dr. Lynch interviews Unity Stoakes – President, Co-founder & Managing Partner at StartUp Health- and Amy Belt Raimundo – Managing Director at Kaiser Permanente Ventures- to discover where and on what technologies are investors putting their money.
Over the last 5 years, the total amount of venture investments have been increasing. With the pandemic, everyone had to shift, and the healthcare industry had to in many ways. In 2020, 14 million dollars were invested into the digital health space. 2021 isn’t a stranger to this. In the past 6 months of the year, there has been a 200% increase in venture dollars compared to last year. Right now, there is a conversion of innovations going on. From different areas, innovations are combining to make new and better products and services.
Amy and Unity share their thoughts about what is coming up for start-ups related to investments and innovations.
