MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
When Drs. Arlen Meyers, Steven Levine, and I started this Society more than eight years ago, it was clear to us that physicians would not be the only members of the group. Yet because of our “end-user” status and our personal understanding of unmet needs in the marketplace, each Chapter of SoPE is led (or co-led) by a physician. But make no mistake about it, SoPE is a society promoting inclusiveness and we welcome and thrive on the diversity of professionals we have as members of this organization. It is through this coalition of innovators and entrepreneurs that we grow both personally and professionally, and create an ecosystem that can critically look at new ideas and help to nurture them from bench to bedside, through our connections, mentorship and resources. I have experienced this myself in my own journey of Biomedical, Biopharmaceutical and medical services entrepreneurship, and preach the value of the “Big SoPE Tent” to all those who will listen!
