Needs create opportunities, and if the pandemic generated by Covid-19 showed something, it is that health is in everything and care is an issue that crosses the borders of the sectors.
Whether it is to take care of workers, partners, students or friends, integration and collaboration is essential to take an exponential leap in solutions. Precisely, back in 2018 it was already beginning to talk in Colombia that health was not evolving, but was heading towards an exponential transformation, which is precisely what is now more evident for other types of players.
While there is already more than 10 vaccines authorized in the world, in which there is great hope for a return to a certain normalcy, the challenges of the pandemic and of health in general throughout the planet are enormous and new challenges will continue to appear. Hence the importance of finding key allies to generate strategies on the path to innovation for each actor.
One of these actors is Boston Scientific, a company that develops, manufactures and markets medical devices with a clear objective, to impact people's lives, and which serves more than 35 million patients around the world. The company has a prominent presence in Latin America, and recently established an alliance with Singularity University, to move from technologies to exponential thought and health.
