Shareholders David Gitlin and Mark Mattioli of global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will be speaking on panels at the Philadelphia Alliance for Capital & Technologies (PACT) Digital Health Half-Day Summit Thursday, March 17, 2016.
According to its website, the summit will provide instrumental insight to small companies and entrepreneurs, where they can engage on key topics within the digital health sector and learn from industry experts. In addition, entrepreneurs will have the ability to pitch and receive venture capitalist feedback, and receive reverse pitches from large companies in the digital health sector.
Gitlin will be presenting on the panel, “Working with Large Companies.” The panel will discuss how entrepreneurs and smaller businesses can work with larger entities, featuring members of the Healthcare Innovation Collaborative and Digital Health startups which have successfully engaged with large organizations.
Mattioli will be presenting on the panel, “Navigating Risk.” The discussion will concentrate on what startups must address when pitching to a larger company. This includes the basics of cyber security, liability, data, compliance, and regulatory concerns.
