Doctorpreneurs – involving doctors in startups
Vishaal Virani, MBBS, Co-Founder of Doctorpreneurs, talks to us about why and how doctors can get involved in startups. Doctorpreneurs is a global community for medical entrepreneurs. They serve to encourage and inspire doctors and medical students who are interested in innovation and entrepreneurship. They do this in a number of ways: through their website, by interviewing successful doctors turned entrepreneurs, and with their opportunities board, which assists startups. They also organise connection events. There is an increasing amount of interest among doctors and medical students who want to either work at a startup, or start their own company.
