Lessons in Leadership — Building a Successful Team and Checking Your Ego at the Door: Interview with Check-Cap Founder and CTO Yoav Kimchy
Show Notes

In this episode of Medsider Radio, we sat down with Yoav Kimchy, Founder and CTO of Check-Cap.

Yoav has more than 20 years of experience in the development and management of innovative medical device companies. In 2005, he founded Check-Cap, a clinical-stage medical diagnostics company that aims to change the colorectal cancer (CRC) screening landscape with its C-Scan ingestible capsule, tracing, and imaging system.

In this discussion, Yoav shares how early feedback from regulators can help streamline your development efforts, why you should shift your team as the company grows, and the importance of knowing when to lead and when to follow.

Before we jump into the conversation, I wanted to mention a few things:
