From Entertainment Law to Eye Color Change: What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been

Gregg Homer, JSD (PhD) - Chairman and Chief Science Officer at Strōma Medical Corporation describes his remarkable journey in this free livestream from Medical Device Playbook Toronto.

"A psychologist once remarked that people who change careers prefer to build upon the skills of their previous career. The reason, however, is not one of efficiency. It’s that we do not want to feel that we've wasted our time. I ignored this advice and lived to tell about it, and I would like to share my observations."

Attendees will learn:

• The road to entrepreneurship: speed bumps, tunnels, and potholes
• From novel idea to market adoption: creative arrogance and stamina
• Stroma Medical Corporation: a case study

Scott Phillips, Medical Device Playbook and StarFish Medical Founder hosts and moderates live audience Q&A with presenters.
