ALL LOOKING for OPPORTUNITY
Society of Physician Entrepreneurs
Maxine Pierson, Executive Director of Strategic Business Institute (SBI) announced today the formation of a Palm Beach County Chapter of the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SOPE).
The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (www.sopenet.org) is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 global biomedical and healthcare innovation network of healthcare professionals who have an idea or desire to improve the delivery of medical services or who wish to make a contribution to the medical/patient community. SoPE provides a platform for members to accelerate and catalyze innovation, with a separate supporting 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Foundation for scholarship and philanthropic endeavors to advance healthcare.
“Our vision, mission and activities are ultimately about championing healthcare innovation from the inside out - better treatments, improved access, at lower costs”, said Ms. Pierson. SoPE supports healthcare professionals and individuals from all backgrounds to achieve their entrepreneurial goals. Making a better world through improved healthcare starts with a good idea - it's our goal to facilitate the transformation of good ideas into great innovations for our growing healthcare community.
We use the term "Physician" loosely to include every medical professional; acupuncturist, audiologists, biomedical engineers, chiropractors, dentists, dietician, medical laboratory technicians, occupational therapist, oncologist, pharmacist, phlebotomist, physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, psychiatrist, radiologist, researchers, respiratory therapist etc., said Dr. Scuderi.
The mission of SoPE is to help biomedical and healthcare entrepreneurs get their ideas, discoveries and inventions to market by providing them with education, connections to service providers and investors.
Quarterly meetings will feature speakers on the cutting edge
of the medical profession presenting their latest findings and developments to
the medical community. “What’s coming,
What’s here and What needs to be changed.
How to bring your idea or invention to the medical community and get it
funded and accepted by other medical professionals to make our healthcare
system the best it can possibly be”, said Dr. Scuderi.
The Chapter is indeed honored to have as its first President the distinguished Orthopedic Surgeon and entrepreneur, Jackson Memorial trained, Dr. Gaetano Scuderi. Dr. Scuderi is the Founder of the Jupiter based Cytonics Corporation. The Cytonics Corporation is a biotechnology company focused on developing therapeutics for musculoskeletal diseases.
