Why are medtech events so important? If you're a biotech startup, networking is essential. Why? Because medical innovation doesn't happen in a vacuum. It doesn't happen when you're working by yourself in your garage, in your classroom, or in your lab. It happens with community. Imua Services is building that community (our O'hana....which means family in Hawaiian) to foster this medical innovation and make it happen. Listen to find out why YOU are needed to grow this and what you can do to be on the ground floor in getting it started.
