Health Tech Investment Landscape: Outlook for 2012 (Panel)
Conferences & Talks

SV Forum

15 February 2012
Genentech, South San Francisco, California



The CTO of the US maintains that there has never been a better time to be an entrepreneur in healthcare, the pace of M&A has never been higher (and is expected to still rise), but technology and consumer behavior are changing faster than regulators and many incubents can keep up with. So, what are the opportunities and challenges in 2012? How is the landscape different from previous years, or is it?

What/where are the biggest or most immediate opportunities and pitfalls for mobile, gaming and social in health? Where are the most attractive opportunities for SV-based startups: market targeting patients, physicians, or payers? What are you looking for in companies who present to you in the next 3 - 12 months?

The coming year will be turbulent. The question addressed at this breakfast event is what that means for entrepreneurs wanting to raise money to build thriving companies in 2012.
