About The Talk
Healthtech is one of the fastest growing industries, with billions of dollars in capital going towards funding healthtech startups in the past few years (with even more attention and funds now because of the ongoing pandemic).
But building in the space is definitely tough, as healthtech startups face challenges that many other companies don’t – they have to deal with established giants like hospital systems, insurers, drugmakers, while navigating regulations and laws that make it difficult to enter the market.
Through all these hurdles we’ve seen companies make our lives better by offering easier access to doctors, medicine, insurance, and more.
To get a better look at the industry, we’re excited to chat with Patrick Quigley, Co-founder & CEO of Sidecar Health, a startup that offers personalized, affordable health insurance.
We’re excited to discuss how Patrick has grown Sidecar Health, and what are some of the nuances that come from building in the healthcare and insurance industries.
We’ll learn about how they launched, fundraised, and developed their platform has set the pace to grow more than 10-fold in 2020.
