About the Event
You’ve got a great idea down on a piece of paper, but what next? How are you going to bring that idea to fruition?
In this webinar, Galen Data is pleased to be joined by Jim Warren, Business Unit Director of Jabil Healthcare. Jabil is the largest manufacturer of medical devices in the world and Jim is a team member at the forefront of their medical device product pipeline. During our discussion, we will detail bringing a medical device from concept to market, and key considerations while on that journey. We will learn the importance of understanding the true costs associated with creating a supply chain and manufacturing strategy, and thoughts on how to maximize your return on invested capital.
- What is the real cost behind creating your medical device?
- What are some the real-world supply chain challenges you will be facing immediately and over the next 3 years?
- How to plan for after your prototype.
- How does a company like Jabil evaluate partnering opportunities and support the medical device innovation ecosystem
