“If you attended our inaugural June 6th 2019 SoPE (Society of Physician Entrepreneurs – Toronto Chapter) meeting…you know it was great. If you missed it … it was great,” said Soloninka. See our newsletter.
The evening event will feature presentations from two physician-entrepreneurs:
- Dr. Brian Courtney, Interventional Cardiologist, CEO and Founder of CONAVI, describes conceiving and bringing combined OCT/Ultrasound, and intraluminal 3D ultrasound technologies to market. This mid-stage company has raised substantial capital, created multiple generations of two products and established distribution agreements internationally.
- Dr. John Reeves, Sports Medicine and Family Physician, now a serial eHealth entrepreneur, CEO of ConversationHealth. ConversationHealth, has created an AI-driven platform to provide conversational ads, avatars, chat bots and information services in clinical trials, Medical Science Liaison and physician sales, serving the pharma industry. With over 15 of the world’s largest pharma companies as customers, learn how this product was conceived, financed, developed and adopted, and how AI-driven medical conversations could transform healthcare well beyond Pharma.
Join us at the office of Torys LLP for fascinating talks, engaging Q&A and extensive networking with the GTA’s vibrant entrepreneurial physician community.
The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) exists to help MDs achieve entrepreneurial success and promote innovation!
SoPE is a non-profit, global network of entrepreneurial MDs collaborating with practicing physicians, fellows and residents to further innovation and entrepreneurship in the medical community.
As serial entrepreneurs in medical technology and diagnostics, Dr. Ken Pritzker and I discovered SoPE, felt it met an important unfilled need in Ontario and the GTA, and founded the Toronto Chapter. And we are now preparing to hold the Inaugural meeting.
The GTA and Ontario are collectively a North American powerhouse of medical service delivery, clinical/scientific research, and medical education. However, few local physicians are trained or mentored in how to convert their innovative ideas into commercial and financial success outside of their clinical practice.
There is no reason the level of medical entrepreneurship in Ontario could not reach that in Boston, San Francisco, New York and Minneapolis.
