S4: #039: Unity Stoakes (Part 2) 10 Moonshots and 25 Years to Change the World

42 minutes

This is the second part of a two-part interview with the batteries included health transformer Unity Stoakes. I gave Unity a full introduction in the previous episode, and now we’re going to pick up where we left off. Unity had just raced across town for a meeting at the White House in 2011, and then launched startup health at Health Datapalooza the very next day. In this episode, we find out what impact Startup Health is having and where they are headed. And you’re also going to hear a superb Yoda impression - you gotta hear that.


Today's Topics:

  • How the current political climate in the US will affect health tech innovation
  • How the Internet boom in the 1990s is similar to the current digital health market
  • The 4 things they focus on in Startup Health:
  • The Startup Academy
  • Establishing a Peer Network
  • The Network of Investors, Customers and Organizations
  • A Promotion Engine to Promote and Share the Stories
  • How startups should evaluate and compare accelerator and incubator programs
  • The role of philanthropy in health tech innovation
  • Why you should apple to attend the Startup Health Festival
  • Unity's favorite saying (and very awesome Yoda impression!)
