Avoid the common pitfalls of new commercial ventures

 

For a large organization, launching a new product or company requires more than a good idea, prototypes, and a 3-year business plan. There is a trail of expensive #fails across the healthcare industry.

+ Too many eggs in one basket

Large, expensive, long term bets required to build a startup in house results in very low diversification of innovation “bets.”

+ Helicopter parenting

The natural corporate instinct to protect such large investments often leads to NewCo’s launching without a validated business model, artificially propelled forward by the resources of the home organization.

+ Corporate Myopia

Internally incubated projects that show promise often get pulled away from broad market applicability & into specific applications, resulting in corporate myopia, or “building solutions to only your problems.”

+ External Distrust

Internally incubated solutions can repel the early adopters required for commercial success, as some customers may distrust the NewCo and the threat of “getting shopped” can deter external partners from engaging.

 
 

How to succeed with new ventures

In today’s rapidly shifting & increasingly competitive landscape of healthcare technology, successful commercializations requires an entrepreneur’s toolbox: opportunistic mentality, gritty persistence, diverse set of skills, high personal risk tolerance, previous startup experience, and the right incentivization to stay engaged throughout the certain bumps along the way.

Corporate ventures also need independence & relative autonomy from their home organization, so they can engage customers & partners opportunistically & make strategic decisions with speed & agility.
