史蒂夫的创业之旅始于5年前, 当他开始专注于“用金融对抗癌症”的想法时.” By redirecting capital to the most impactful clinical-stage therapeutics, 史蒂夫认为, 他可以帮助这些药物更快地进入市场, 病人和投资者都受益. 当时, he was running financial planning 和 analysis at an alternative asset manager, 所以他利用晚上和周末的时间完善这个想法.

戴夫,来自约翰逊的世界知名人工智能专家 & 约翰逊, 也来到体育赛事竞猜影响了他的职业生涯, 尽管他从未打算成为一名企业家. “My goal was to bridge the gap between business 和 technology in biopharmaceuticals, 和 ultimately find a way to use artificial intelligence to impact patient lives.” 

丹, 约翰霍普金斯大学的医学教授和神经外科医生, 来到沃顿是为了颠覆医疗领域. “To make a real impact, we need a combination of the best minds in business 和 healthcare.” So, how did an aspiring entrepreneur connect with an artificial intelligence expert 和 neurosurgeon to launch a healthcare fintech company? 它始于一个保龄球馆. 

“It was the second week of school, 和 our class went bowling,” Steve explained. “I was chatting with classmates about why I came to 体育赛事竞猜 和 my idea to use finance to fight cancer. 我正在解释我的想法, I overheard Dave behind me begin explaining how he could use an algorithm to identify the most promising clinical-stage drug c和idates. 戴夫和我把体育赛事竞猜的想法放在一起 BioPhy 出生.” 

Soon after that night, Steve 和 Dave met 丹 at a classmate’s birthday party. 丹 had spent the previous 10 years as a Spinal Oncologist 和 Professor of Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Medical. 丹在寻找新的想法, 当戴夫和史蒂夫分享他们的愿景时, 丹很高兴能提供他的医学观点并加入这个团队.

Dave agreed that the classes were helpful in giving him the confidence to start his own business. “通过公司金融等课程,”他解释说, “I learned how to evaluate different opportunities 和 weigh their potential business implications. I also talked with 体育赛事竞猜’s Executive-in-Residence 和 professors who affirmed our approach 和 I started using the concepts from every class I took to shape our business.” 

“沃顿的生态系统非常棒,”丹补充道. “它让体育赛事竞猜能够不断地向课堂外的人学习, including alumni 和 connections made by our classmates 和 professors. Every entrepreneur we met spent time talking with us to help prepare us for this path.”
