Advice from the TOP: Dennis McWilliams discusses partnering with PTV

Austin, Texas – January 15, 2015 – PTV Healthcare Capital today launched the second video in their new video series, Advice from the TOP. The video features Dennis McWilliams, Apollo Endosurgery Founder and Chief Commercial Officer,  as he discusses his experiences partnering with PTV.

McWilliams says in the video, “I think where PTV has really helped me focus my thinking is on ‘How do you focus on building a sustainable business? How do you build something that’s going to drive revenue, that’s going to have a team to support it, that’s going to be able to become profitable one day?’ And not just doing that in the United States, but thinking about that globally. I think that perspective has really helped Apollo become what it is today.”

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.
