From idea to impact: The new market for public health entrepreneurs

From our friends at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health!

Investors have traditionally given short shrift to public health, seeing it as a field for do-gooders, not a vehicle for profits. But that’s starting to change. More academic researchers and public health professionals are seeking to take their discoveries commercial, and more investors are willing to listen. In this panel, Harvard Public Health magazine brings together founders and investors to talk about the challenges — and rewards— of developing affordable goods and services aimed at improving health on a population scale. And if you have an idea you’d like to bring to market, check out HealthLab, a new accelerator for student ventures focused on improving public and planetary health. Co-founded by Harvard Chan School and Harvard College’s Lemann Program on Creativity and Entrepreneurship, HealthLab will welcome its first cohort of students from across the University this fall. Participants receive startup support, mentorship—and the chance to compete for a $100,000 prize.

Max Mirho has taught entrepreneurship to students and professionals around the world by giving them the tools to experiment rapidly.
