Disrupting Costly Medical Devices

Come listen as CEO Patrick Freuler discusses not only how to disrupt the traditionally expensive healthcare market, but brilliantly design a business plan to support it along with a tech app to supplement the product. Patrick is not only a whiz at identifying a true need, but an innovator for the hearing aid market. Saving consumers $12 million to date, he will surely teach you how to identify attractive markets by reducing costs of medical devices and building tech products that complement it, such as Audicus’ hearing test app to be released soon!

Audicus will be presenting at SXSW in March, so we will be including a fireside chat as part of the event to gain insight into how to pitch at these competitions and the company’s overall experience of the event. Please RSVP and buy your ticket via Eventbrite to hold your spot!
