great motivation for health tech founders

Discovered this podcast after hearing Dr Somauroo on the Big Picture Medicine podcast. Loved his advice for healthcare entrepreneurs on finding problems in the hospital to tackle and how he got started fixing printers for his colleagues. As a former software engineer and indie hacker doc we’re hoping to build something worth interviewing sometime. Great interviews and guests!

Health Innovation at it's BEST

A very informative podcast with innovations that matter. Dr. James Solmauroo goes more in-depth than many other Health Tech podcasts. It's very informative and should be listened by all interested in bringing forward innovation in their startup or company.
