We pause at the start of 2013 to reiterate what drives us in what we do. As you may well know, Maternova is building an online marketplace for technologies and protocols that save the lives of mothers and newborns. We want to remove epic layers of red tape to make it easy for clinicians and researchers to access life-saving technologies. We'd like to make it as easy as click and ship.
Maternova benefited from a Brown University team of students who spent the entire semester working through revenue models and creative options for monetizing and expanding the site. A big thanks to Liz Adler, Mark Farnham, Kat Sorroko & Will Weidig ! If you like the innovations featured in the Innovation Index and want to purchase them, stay tuned for 'suitcase stuffers'
