Meet Our Team

We are a team of digital health and pharma experts

Our PharmStarsTM team is dedicated to driving digital health adoption. Our goal is to improve patient outcomes. With extensive expertise across pharma, startups, digital health, and innovation, we understand the challenges that pharma and startups face when seeking to collaborate. We work with our pharma members and digital health startups to “bridge the gap.” This will lead to greater success for both pharma and startups as well as faster adoption of “beyond the molecule” benefits for patients.

The PharmStars team creates and manages every aspect of our program: coursework, mentorship curriculum, one-on-one mentoring, pitch preparation, and the Showcase Event. The PharmStars team is involved every step of the way.
