Venture investors say the top 3 key criteria to success in investing is “People, People, People” but what skill sets and personality attributes set successful entrepreneurs apart? Is there a blueprint to entrepreneur success that guarantees an investment decision? Will an “A Team” turn a “B Product” into a winner? Will a B team turn an A idea into a C level product? 


Let’s also turn the tables. How does a founder choose an investor? Will an all-star VC turn a good entrepreneur into a great company?  What are the signs to look for in an investor?? Could the wrong investor destroy what could have been a unicorn? 

What are the characteristics of a Good Entrepreneur? Industry expertise, unique product ideas… Or is it a personality trait like patience, persistence and problem solving…

What is a good VC investor from the entrepreneur view point? Is it the firm’s name or the partner’s track record? What does a good VC bring to the table besides money? Mentorship, strategic direction, connections…
It is my experience that mentoring is essential, not only for the product and strategic direction but for helping build a team that can scale the business... instead of just replacing them at the next stage of growth. 
Join us on May 6 at the TieCon to find out what can make or break a company in this partnership between founders and investors?

October 21, 2014 - The HealthTech Conference once again gathered around 500 of the brightest minds in Healthcare and Technology last week at the two-day event in San Mateo, CA. Hosted by Anne DeGheest and Don Ross of HealthTech Capital, the conference explored how to build sustainable HealthTech Businesses by bringing together the best minds from the existing healthcare stakeholders with investors and creative entrepreneurs. The yearly gathering convened HealthTech leaders to discuss the greatest industry pain-points and define best approaches to change healthcare delivery in the changing payment system and realignment of risk between employers, payers, providers, physicians and ultimately the consumers!

One of the major opportunities discussed by panelists was the need for increased collaboration between hospitals, established industry players and entrepreneurs to improve healthcare delivery models through technology innovation and partnerships. In line with this theme, HealthTech Conference hosted a Start-up Venture Competition intended to identify innovative companies that leverage technologies to change healthcare delivery, decrease cost and empower patients. Live at the event, three start-up founder finalists, Vitreous Health, Frame Health and iHuman Patients presented their companies and received feedback from the Venture Panel, including: Joel Krikston of Merck Global Health Innovation Fund, Wende Hutton of Canaan Partners, Casper de Clercq of Norwest Venture Partners and Jonathan Root of U.S. Venture Partners.
