What you’ll get out of this episode
Listen in as co-host Rebecca Gwilt chats with Antidote Health CEO Avihai Soudri about the startup scene in Israel, his vision for America's first virtual HMO, and a bit about the shift in VC investment in seed stage companies.
And an extra shout to Antidote Health for closing a $12M seed round of funding last week!
In this episode you’ll discover:
- Why this NY-based company still does so much R&D in Tel Aviv
- What drove Antidote to create an AI-driven virtual HMO
- How Antidote wants to help the large uninsured and underinsured populations in the US
- And a fun final question we don’t want to give away
This lively conversation is one you won’t want to miss if you’re a health system leader, a digital health innovator, a startup founder, or a healthcare tech investor.
