From Zero to Success: Creating the Right Product Through Strategic Opportunity Evaluation
Successful innovation begins well before the launch of a traditional device development program. The complexity and high cost of device development requires that a potential innovation be considered from different perspectives. While vetting innovations for opportunities is never an easy task, there are actions that can be taken to map the value proposition of the market opportunity, reduce risk and streamline the process. In this first session of our four-part DeviceConnect series, you’ll hear from experts who have successfully navigated this Phase Zero and brought products to market. 

Moderated by: Scott Thielman, CTO, Product Creation Studio




Greg Sessler, President & CEO, Olympus Respiratory America 

Kate Sharadin, Chief Commercial Officer & Co-Founder, eQuility
