Join Terri Butler, Chandana Haque and Aditi Martin as they discuss how incubators and accelerators are critical to advance innovation.
This roundtable will be hosted by:
- Terri Butler, PhD, Associate Director of Technology Outreach & Partnerships, WE-REACH, Bio Medical Innovation Bootcamp
- Chandana Haque, Executive Director, Altitude Lab
- Aditi Martin, PhD, Senior Director, Collaborations and Entrepreneurship, OHSU, Director, Innovation and Awards Program, Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute, OHSU
Accelerators and incubators are essential in creating a culture where stakeholders can freely exchange ideas and develop solutions to known and existing problems within the health care system. As we have found through the Health Care Innovation Advancement Framework, impactful innovation can thrive when clinical and entrepreneurial communities are supported to help drive solutions that positively impact the Triple Aim.
Who should attend this event?
• Innovators looking to work with an incubator/accelerator to advance their work.
• Ecosystem builders who work in peer organizations to learn best practices and bring in new ideas to their communities.
About Our Roundtables:
Q&A roundtable discussions are conducted by the community to provide opportunities for a small group discussion with subject matter experts.
