Remote · A Business Development experience with EM Scientific from London, UK

Mentored by Michael

Having grown up with a genetic bone condition, I have a deep personal connection to medical technology innovation. I think it's the most exciting and rewarding field there is! I've worked really hard to get to the point where I can run a medtech start-up and am very happy to share wisdom with others where I can. I've spent the past 6 years on the business side of life sciences tech projects: - Boston Scientific: Business development & consulting with hospitals for new cardiovascular medical devices - Stent Tek: Planned market entry to Japan for new fistula device for kidney failure patients - Accenture (GSK, Novartis, Merck, UK National Health Service): life sciences software consulting projects; digital health projects - Inoviv: ran start up developing medicinal product to treat common warts - Medicare Australia Outside work, I love travel and composing music.

This experience has limited places. We recommend applying soon.
