In this episode of Medsider Radio, we sat down with Rosina Samadani, CEO of Oculogica.
Rosina Samadani initially joined Oculogica in an advisory role, supporting her neurosurgeon sister’s plan to develop EyeBOX, a diagnostic medtech device for concussions. In 2015, Rosina transitioned into her current role as President and CEO of the company. With a doctorate in biomedical engineering from MIT, Rosina has been involved with multiple startups. She also serves as a judge for Stanford’s StartX Accelerator, and MIT’s $100K Entrepreneurship Competition.
In this discussion, Rosina shares the importance of relationships in the regulatory and reimbursement processes, why first-time entrepreneurs shouldn’t be intimidated by complex procedures, and lessons learned from her experiences raising capital.
