A Game-Changing Approach to Providing the Right Medical Devices to Developing Countries


Is This a Click Moment?

Last month I attended the Medical Devices 10X Conference in Minneapolis. There I met Terry Mandel, founder of BioMedLink ‒‒ a woman who believes in serendipity or, as PIPELINE Keynote Frans Johansson would say, "click moments." These moments ‒‒ when the right ideas, people, and circumstances come together to seed or propel innovation forward that otherwise would not happen ‒‒ urge us to stop and tune in or miss an opportunity. I learned of the organization she founded, BioMedLink, which uses a systematic approach to connect frugal innovators with funding sources and their affordable inventions with the clinics and hospitals in developing countries that need them. In our interview for the PIPELINE Wire, Terry shares the impetus behind the organization and why it has the potential to impact billions of lives. Read the article Innovation Insights: A Q&A with Terry Mandel of BioMedLink to learn more.

I'd like to hear from you. Share a time when the right ideas, people, and circumstances came together to seed or propel innovation forward or let us know of an innovation that is changing the game in a powerful way by leaving a comment below.
