📆 What's next...
On Friday, January 28, you’ll receive the first edition of Seed Spotlight! 🌱
The first issue will feature a cancer drug company looking to radically reduce costs for patients through redistribution. The best part… the founders are still in college!
As a reminder…
This monthly edition will feature a conversation with an early-stage startup founder building in the healthcare space. I will dive into the company’s business model, the problem they are solving, and learnings from the founder.
