Today’s episode is a conversation I had with Dr. Jake Brenner, who is pulmonary and critical care physician at Penn who splits his time between clinical work, developing technologies in the lab, and founding companies to bring those technologies to market. He completed his MD/PhD at Stanford, and participated in their Stanford Biodesign Fellowship program. He was able to spin two separate companies out of his involvement with that program, and is currently working on another called RightAir.
In the episode, we hit on the Stanford Biodesign program, how to think like an entrepreneur, the companies he’s founded, advice for young medical entrepreneurs and engineers, and a bit on his future goals. This is an incredible episode for anyone interested in using their clinical knowledge to design, build, and commercialize medical technologies.
