It doesn’t matter how long a company has been in business. Startups to established companies need to remain focused on the value proposition of its device product development efforts. Today’s guest is Scott Phillips, CEO of StarFish Medical. He offers advice on how to approach value proposition depending on the stage of your business. Some of the highlights of the show include: ● What does your company value? Point priorities in the right direction. ● Founders start a company because they want to make an impact, offer value, but own most of it. ● Equity Preservation for Startups: Avoid the trajectory of delusion after raising millions of dollars of capital. ○ Be skeptical of advice ○ Identify and address risks ○ Focus on what investors value ○ Understand value of minimum viable product (MVP)/lean startup concept ● StarFish uses a framework that addresses 12 functional areas to identify client’s target audience, IT environment, reimbursement strategy, and other factors. ● There’s plenty of horror stories about when things go bad. Also, it can be considered bad business when companies rush to get in human-type studies. ● Equity Preservation for Established Companies: Basically the same as startups, except the notion that future money is cheaper than current money doesn’t apply. ● Established companies tend to place more emphasis on regulatory processes, submissions, and clearances. StarFish helps startups fill gaps in such areas. ● Those in a product management role at a startup often have a tech background and don’t understand the role’s responsibilities.
