Is listening your winning strategy? w/ Harsh Vathsangam



Even though the world of healthcare is slow to implement changes to tried-and-true systems, the world of healthcare technology rockets right along. 

For many entrepreneurs who build startups in the healthcare space, we’re expecting that quick pace, we brace for it and match it - even when slowing down might be our best option.

Harsh Vathsangam is the Co-Founder and CEO of Moving Analytics and he’s here to remind us that sometimes (okay, more often than not), slowing the pace and really listening can be the key to success.

When we move too fast, we can miss small details that pack a big punch - and when our company picks up on those details and puts them into play, we put our solutions at the head of the pack.

In this week’s episode, learn how strategy can be both quick and thoughtful if we simply take the time necessary to really listen to what our market, and customers, are telling us.
