I’m sure you all know “The Sunscreen Song (Class of ’99),“ by Baz Luhrmann, where Baz talks about a graduation class through some of the home truths about life. The song concludes with the truism, “But trust me on the sunscreen.”
Well, I’m no Baz Luhrmann; nor Warren Buffett or Jeff Bezos; however, if I were to give you one piece of advice about succeeding in your professional life, it would be to associate with “winners;” in particular, serial winners. Sometimes, being able to identify a winner is not an easy thing to do. Other times though, it’s as easy as falling over your own two feet.
Let me put it to you another way. Let’s say you were a good basketball player and one day you just happened to run into Michael Jordan and he said to you, “Scotty Pippen, Dennis Rodman, Horace Grant, and myself are putting together a pick-up team; wanna be the fifth?” Do you believe your team would be successful? I think we all know the answer to that question.
So what does all this have to do with Roche, aMoon, and StarFinder Lab? Well, when it comes to the world of healthcare and diagnostics, Roche has few peers. And when it comes to the fields of HealthTech and Life Sciences investment, aMoon is Israel’s largest fund giving its portfolio companies an unmatched competitive edge. Together, StarFinder Lab, powered by Roche and aMoon, is the dream team for any young company in Israel looking to make its mark on the world of healthcare.
As a StarFinder Lab participant, you will be guided by the elite human capital at Roche and aMoon. Do you believe you would have a better chance of making your groundbreaking idea work with these people in your corner? I think the answer is self-evident.
Not only are Roche and aMoon leaders in their respective realms of expertise, but their skills perfectly complement each other; creating an unrivaled innovation platform where StarFinder Lab participants can evolve and flourish under their intimate guidance and mentorship.
Any aspiring entrepreneur knows what they know; however, the question is whether they know what they don’t know. At StarFinder Lab, you have access to human resources who, through being part of vast ecosystems and exposed to the myriad cutting-edge ideas that cross their desk from all over the world, can help them identify and expose them to opportunities they may not have known existed.
This is not to belittle the intelligence of StarFinder Lab entrepreneurs; rather it is a matter of fact that no matter how brilliant the individual, they are limited in their bandwidth and ability to “know it all” whilst being so heavily focused and invested in their own early-stage idea. Similarly, a startup with a handful of entrepreneurs, simply cannot have the same footprint and reach as an established multinational.
When you combine the established talents of Roche and aMoon with the brilliant exuberance of the participants in the innovation platform that is StarFinder Lab, all the ingredients are present for healthcare innovations that will light up the world. Perhaps that’s why we’re all going to need that sunscreen.
