S3: #026: Kate Newhouse on How to Cross Borders and Overcome Obstacles in Telemedicine

34 minutes

On this show we’ve spoken to entrepreneurs that are serving needs in developed markets, we’ve spoken to entrepreneurs who are creating solutions for developing markets like those in sub-saharan Africa, but we’ve not spoken to startups that are doing both simultaneously. Today we’re changing that as we talk with Kate Newhouse, the CEO of Doctor Care Anywhere – a UK based company that is developing digital healthcare services to users in the UK and in Kenya. Kate studied history at the University of Oxford before starting a consulting career that focused on digital transformation and healthcare.

We dive into the telemedicine industry and the start of Doctor Care Anywhere, and discuss the strategy that’s helped their company succeed in growing a technology platform when neither of the two co-founders, nor their first employee had a technical background.


Today’s Topics:

  • Developments in the telemedicine industry
  • How they got funded
  • How they won their first customers
  • Who they won as their first customers
  • How they decided to expand into Kenya
  • How to grow a technology startup without being technical
