Meet Dr. Erika Dillard, PopCheck Technologies and other Founders: Launch Lane Digital Health Cohort Q&A

“As a physician entrepreneur, I favor processes that rely more on my science background because that is what I’m most familiar. That level of comfort can be thwarting to business particularly in healthcare with so many stakeholders and restrictions that can prolong getting a technology to market. As such, I must push myself to tackle those milestones that will achieve this in a time and resource efficient manner. Launch Lane has proven to deliver this value for its entrepreneurs through demonstrated expertise and ability to establish key connections to move our ventures forward.”
