Esther Dyson, Chairman, EDventure Holdings
Esther needs no introduction to the technology crowd. But in the last few years healthcare investing (Medscape, Medstory, PatientsLikeMe, 23andme, Organized Wisdom, Imoveyou and many more) has taken more and more of her time. At the first Health 2.0 she likened the health care system to a “calcified hairball stuck at the bottom of a drain” and now she‘s on the warpath about the market for “bad health.”
Indu Subaiya, Matthew Holt and Pascal Lardier give their perspective on the Health 2.0 Berlin 2011 conference and the future of Health 2.0 in Europe.
