The observable examined

Launch of a new venture

leave a comment »

I jumped off the cliff, so to speak, at the end of February 2011. I have embarked on a new venture, mpallette. It has been a very rewarding five months so far, filled with everything from meeting lots of interesting people, continuously evolving product and business plans, the complexity of evaluating multiple markets and their unique needs, distilling one’s value proposition with crystal clarity, persuading, influencing and winning people over to your point of view, raising funds, the list is a fascinating one. In subsequent blogs, I will try and catalog, in more detail, this sojourn(hopefully it will be a long and successful one). I will try and bring the sense of excitement, frustration, and sometimes downright self-doubt that characterizes the journey.

For now, I can say, the space I am going to operate in, for the forseeable future, is at the confluence of technology + healthcare. There is opportunity for tremendous value creation. It gets even better. If I can persevere, with a little bit of luck, there is the potential to change the way medicine is practiced, in that, there will be unprecedented access to fine grained data : at the individual level, at the family level, and so on, all the way to the world population level.

This has the twin benefits of making money (who doesn’t want to) while more importantly, influencing every human life, in a positive way, by enabling the delivery of better healthcare, thereby helping every individual protect their most important asset – their health.

Now, the challenge is to deliver on that vision………
