To love what you do and feel that it matters—how could anything be more fun?
Harvard MBA student Stacey Borden and partner Meghan Muntean will lead a team of women in launching an “edgy, approachable, engaging” online health resource uniquely targeted to women, ages 18 to 27. It will have content and Q&As, updated daily, from medical, family and nutrition experts.
How Launching a Startup is Like Your Health
Sunday, May 30, 2010
We’re very excited to launch our beta site soon. We’re currently doing final edits on our content and tweaking the UI. We are also pleased to announce that our business plan made the semi finals in the Harvard Business School business plan contest.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with talented and patient professionals, such as our graphic artist, developer and lawyer. In working with them, we’ve realized how much launching a startup is actually like caring for your health. When you go to the doctor, they know how to treat what’s wrong (hopefully!) and what to look out for. But unless they have all the time in the world to devote to you, there may be some issues to which they just don’t pay much attention. It’s up to you to take ownership over your health and be on top of everything you need to ask or tell your doctor.
