Session 2 | Thursday, December 1 | 8:00–10:00am PT
All 25 Hive entrepreneurs will take the stage to share how their visionary ideas and innovations are affecting change in every area of health and medicine. This session will feature disruptive thinking applied to therapeutics for aging and the microbiome, new tools for diagnosing cancers, accessible models of global philanthropy, creative methods for delivering care to those in need, engaging public health initiatives, managing long-term disease, and much more.
Their work will be shared in short, 2 minute talks illuminating the powerful and central idea at the foundation of their innovation, given across four mini-themes, that link common threads from each game-changing idea:
- Tremendously Tiny: will explore small-scale innovations with big scale implications
- Zoom out: highlights ideas that emerge when we seek broader perspectives
- Public Spirit: merges altruistic vision with entrepreneurial ingenuity
- Curveball: introduces creative disruption engaged with age old problems.
Joining this session is newly announced Sam Maher, our Transcendent Handpanner. His innovative and unique melodies are played on an emerging instrument, the handpan, which will complement the intriguing ideas presented during this session. To learn more about Sam and his music, check out his bio.
