Every great business is founded upon a great idea. If you’re in the market for a new startup venture, the risks of any new company can be daunting if your idea is deemed a bit “out there.” It’s usually the way the cookie crumbles, any idea is potentially a bad one, but there are startup ideas that funders are happier to throw their money at.
Is it any surprise, that with more and more healthcare organizations becoming privatized around the world, that ordinary people are crying out for healthcare that is affordable.

As part of making people indispensable, it’s certainly a very good selling point for a company.
