Changing paths is never easy, but if that decision allows you to generate a transformational impact that can benefit millions of people, then it's worth a try. In this episode, Sunny Kumar, MD & Partner at GSR Ventures joins the show to share his entrepreneurial experience, which took the best out of his research and caregiving experience. We also address the things that folks in the medical field are doing to make it a more versatile space. Plus, Sunny talks about his role in GSR Ventures and why New Haven’s style pizza deserves more praise! JUMP STRAIGHT INTO: (00:47) - Discussing Sunny’s first approach to entrepreneurship and how it relates to innovation - “We had discovered that with the closure of one of the largest grocery stores in the area, there was no access to fresh fruit for all of downtown New Haven.” (04:36) - The first pivotal moments that led Sunny into the healthcare path - “While I loved the basic science, I found the application to medicine -to the human impact that came with that- to be incredibly rewarding.” (09:25) - Connecting research with business: Sunny’s MBA experience inside Stanford GSB - “These emerging technologies looked like they could dramatically change how medicine was trained and practiced. How patients interact with their physicians. But this has not yet been widely adopted.” (19:48) - Wave Medics: The story of Sunny’s second startup - “The beauty of this was that you could use the smart speaker to interact with the patient, collect information, process that information and then use that processed information to guide treatment.” (26:30) - Transformative impact: Sunny’s advice for people thinking about switching their career paths - “I believe many of our programs can put trainees down a relatively narrow path without a lot of visibility into what those alternatives may be.” (33:12) - A phase of change: What does the medical path need in order to become more versatile? - “Most of medicine is done in an institutional setting where administrative decisions aren’t made by the physicians. My view of the world is that physicians are increasingly recognizing that.” (37:06) - What is GSR Ventures and how is Sunny helping them grow? (+Pizza talk!) - “I work with companies that are raising anywhere between a million dollars to $15 million from us with the goal of building technologies that are going to have a transformative impact in healthcare.” EPISODE RESOURCES:  Connect with Sunny on (LinkedIn)  Learn more about (GSR Ventures)  Thank you for listening!
