Old dog, new tricks: Taking innovative technology mainstream w/ Peter T. Bianco



When it comes to innovative technology, the healthcare space has always been notoriously slow, making them the proverbial “old dog.” 

But when you have a “new trick” with data backing up its efficacy, sometimes that old dog sits up and takes notice. Just ask Peter Bianco, Founder & Chairman at OsteoApp.ai.

Peter’s company took a non-AI proven screening product and enhanced it with artificial intelligence, filling a long-neglected need in the orthopedic space.

The solution proved to be a more convenient and effective option for both the healthcare industry and patients at risk for osteoporosis.

Peter takes the time to highlight his commercialization journey - one that utilized serendipity, strategic steps, and innovative vision on its way to disproving that old saying that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.


Here are the show highlights:

  • The power of collaboration (5:58)
  • Navigating the gap between pilots (10:16)
  • How to price revolutionary innovations (15:29)
  • When small steps are better (17:53)
  • Education’s role in commercialization (22:47)
  • The benefit of a strategic lead investor (29:08)
