Geoff Clapp graciously shared his entrepreneurial expertise in healthcare during a recent fireside chat on digital health under a Trump presidency.
The fireside chat gathered some of the best in healthcare tech thought leadership, including:
- Geoffrey Clapp, health technology entrepreneur and Paubox adviser
- Rebecca Woodcock, Entrepreneur in Residence, 500 Startups and head of digital health track
- Noah Lewis, Managing Director, GE Ventures
- Lan Anh Nguyen, CEO, ManageUP PRM
“It’s a world of opportunity to you as entrepreneurs. Now we can debate ethics, we debate politics. That’s a lot of opportunity. It might not happen in the insurance market but it’s going to be fascinating on the employer side.
I’m Geoff Clapp, I’m a healthcare entrepreneur. Policy has a huge effect in healthcare. It’s really hard for an entrepreneur to understand, but I also think this is a really challenging time for everyone in healthcare with the administration change. So even just getting a group of people together to just talk through it, I learn as much from the questions and things we’re debating on the stage as anything.
Last year, 5 years ago, all of those time periods when the ACA existing- healthcare was still broken. Next month, it’s still broken, no matter what executive order happens.
I think the panel was really well constructed by the Paubox team because you had this, as Noah called himself this “red blooded capitalist,” and I think the rest of the panel had different points of view. And I think that’s what the community needs right now is to come together and talk through these really complex issues and hopefully figure out really new and innovative startups to tackle some of them.”
