Carolina Innovations Seminar
October 5, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
A Healthcare Startup in a Crowded Vertical
Measuring and improving the patient experience has become one of the top priorities of the healthcare system. The space is full of existing companies and solutions, all of whom want a piece of the nearly $2 trillion annual spend by hospitals and provider offices. Bivarus spun out of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012 and is redefining how healthcare leaders capture and operationalize patient- and employee-generated insights to improve patient care and service operations.
David Levin, Chief Executive Officer, and Amos Slaymaker, VP of Sales and Business Development will discuss the lessons learned entering this space as well as what it’s been like growing from a one location / 10 employee company to one with over 70 employees and two locations in under a year.
The Office of Commercialization and Economic Development offers various workshops, including the Carolina Innovations Seminar. This monthly series of events gives you the opportunity to hear from a lineup of distinguished guest speakers who are experts in a wide range of topics related to innovation, commercializing research and starting new ventures. Join colleagues in the Great Room at Top of the Hill Restaurant & Brewery from 5:30 to 6:30 p .m. on the first Thursday of each month to hear the guest speaker presentation. Afterwards, you’re invited to networking reception in the same space, where you can connect with other attendees, unwind and share insights.
