TENN Roadshow – Day 2
Miles Traveled: 485
Day two of the LaunchTN Road Show started early in Knoxville with an invitation-only event at Radio Systems Corporation, which ironically was founded with a vision to transform an antiquated pet management industry by leveraging new technology much the way I envision our cloud-based Healthcare MarketMaker platform to transform the healthcare industry. Today, Radio Systems Corporation has made electronic pet devices the norm just as I hope one day the virtual marketplace created by Healthcare MarketMaker will be the norm for physicians. Needless to say, the event not only provided great networking opportunities, but gave me a boost of entrepreneurial inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration, after traveling to our next Road Show stop in Chattanooga, I had the opportunity to visit with two LaunchTN TENN mentors, Andy Stockett, managing director at FourBridges Capital Advisors and Sydney Crisp, vice president at Unum. They have decades of experience managing operations, finance, and investment transactions for companies of all sizes, so their feedback and guidance at this point in program will certainly help me refine how I present Healthcare MarketMaker to prospective partners during the rest of the Road Show.
We concluded our stay in Chattanooga with an event hosted by Coyote Logistics, another prime example of a company that used advances in technology to change a mature industry. With each stop on the Road Show I become more encouraged at the potential impact Healthcare MarketMaker can have on the healthcare industry and its physicians in the future.
On to Nashville!
