The Redox Podcast: Episode 36– Reproduction&Pediatrics pt 3: Dama Dipayana Co-founder & CEO of Manatee

This was such a fun, multifaceted finale to our Reproduction & Pediatrics Podcast series. It’s always interesting to hear how people born outside the US stumble upon our healthcare system. Especially when they make it a point to explore business endeavors within it. Manatee made a splash on the health tech scene in 2019 by winning the HLTH pitch competition, TechStars, and Prime. Damayanti Dipayana, cofounder and CEO of Manatee, gives us a blunt and honest look into some of their decisions and how she manages her priorities while at the head of a fast-growing startup. She hints at an announcement so I’m definitely keeping my ears open for what’s brewing for their future.

Thanks for scheduling time with us Dama!

Now in a virtual setting, you really have to nail your onboarding process and think through how to get providers really excited about using and implementing your product.
