What is prototyping?

For healthcare entrepreneurs, prototyping refers to developing an early version of a product or service. Prototyping bridges the divide between an idea and a viable product.

Once a healthcare entrepreneur has a good idea of the unmet need they're trying to fill and what they need to build, they need capital to validate their hypothesis before building a prototype. It can be a challenge for healthcare entrepreneurs to gain access to the care setting to prototype their product or service.
