Question: Eduardo, please share 1–2 major brain health needs you observe right now whose solution demands a creative and significant tech-enabled innovation.
Answer: We need to understand what stimuli and interventions can result in healthy fetus/ baby development, reducing the percentage of children developing significant brain deficiencies and providing means for pregnant women, parents, and health care providers to deliver those stimuli and interventions.
Question: And what advice would you give an entrepreneur launching an innovation to address those needs–for the approach to be successful and sustainable?
Answer: The main thing I’d recommend is to cultivate strong partnerships with researchers to develop and validate those interventions and with allied organizations to enable scaling distribution once the solution is proven to help.
