Take the Risk and Don't Give Up ⭐

January 5, 2022

“Take the risk and don’t give up” 

Happy New Year!  This first week of 2022 finds us continuing to navigate the uncertainty of COVID-19 and fueled by the notion that connecting and innovating together will power progress. We’re looking forward to continuing to experiment and collaborate with you to tackle challenges and build moonshots.  Next week, we’ll highlight our 2022 roadmap for experimentation, so stay tuned.

In one of our last Thursday Gatherings of 2021, Tiffany Wilson had a fireside chat with Terry Talbot about the future of healthcare innovation which included everything from backup singing for Barry Manilow to immense amounts of data to create digital twinning. When asked what advice he had for founders, Terry’s answer: “take the risk and don’t give up.”  (Watch or Listen to the conversation here).

As we move into 2022, we want to hear what risks you’re taking and how we can support your journey! Reply to this email, join us for a Thursday Gathering community conversation, or tag us on social media #taketherisk2022.
