The first half of the sessions focus on various aspects of starting and growing a new health care business, whether a for-profit or non-profit venture. The second half of the sessions focus on fostering innovation and intrapreneurship in established organizations such as non-profit, for-profit or governmental organizations engaged in health care related activities.
