Serial Entrepreneurs: Sharing Secrets to Success in Medical Devices

Many strive to develop successful medical device startups; however, not all succeed. Those who do succeed often do so repeatedly, becoming serial entrepreneurs. Join us to hear from three experienced Bay Area entrepreneurs who will share the experiences and advice that have been critical to their success. They will also share their views on the current state of the medical device industry.
