Turning Your End Users Into Key Investors: Interview with Lazurite CEO and Co-founder Eugene Malinskiy
Show Notes

In this episode of Medsider Radio, we sat down with Eugene Malinskiy, CEO and Co-founder of Lazurite.

Eugene is a serial entrepreneur with expertise in the IT and medical fields. He also has hands-on experience as a medic and has worked in operating rooms throughout the country. He founded Lazurite, an innovative healthcare company focused on cutting-edge surgical and lighting technologies, in 2015. That same year, Eugene was selected as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 recipients in the manufacturing sector.

In this discussion, Eugene shares how planning out every step of ArthroFree’s regulatory strategy helped streamline the FDA clearance process, the importance of preparing for failure and being ready to solve problems, and why entrepreneurs should seek out input from investors at every step of the process.
