Advice from the TOP: Why Invest in Healthcare?
Austin, Texas – June 8, 2015 – PTV Healthcare Capital today launched the next video in their Advice from the TOP series. The video features Dennis McWilliams, Apollo Endosurgery Founder and Chief Commercial Officer, as he discusses why now is an excellent time to invest in healthcare.
“Where I see the opportunity shifting a bit is not only driving innovation and new technology, which has been the focus, but being able to do that in a way that makes the healthcare system more efficient – that takes costs out of the system,” says McWilliams in the video. “I think that’s where innovation is headed, and I think as an entrepreneur you have to be thinking and have the expectation that your innovations are going to do that. And to me that’s why it’s exciting to invest. Because if you can find ways to help our society be more effective in delivering healthcare on the dollar, then you’re going to be rewarded for that pretty significantly.”
The Advice from the TOP series, which launched in December of last year, features PTV CEOs and Senior Advisors as well as other industry thought leaders offering insight and advice to entrepreneurs in the healthcare industry and reflecting on their experiences partnering with PTV. The entire series can be found on PTV’s website at www.ptvhc.com/resources/advice-from-the-top/.
