Raising Capital During a Pandemic



An investor calls and holds off on wiring funds. A VC halts new investments. An angel decides to significantly cut back. These are anecdotes we’ve heard from entrepreneurs since the Covid pandemic hit six month ago, yet many continue to raise and close rounds of funding. How’d they do it? StartUp Health Health Transformers, Lynda Brown-Ganzert of Curatio who closed a Series A round in June, and Richard Hanbury of Sana Health who raised ~$6M in August, share how they successfully navigated the fundraise process before and during COVID. Key takeaways will include: finding your funding route, pivoting your pitch to be relevant in an After-Covid world, and best practices for telling your story and connecting with investors virtually.

One Health Transformer’s Decades-Long Journey to Cure Chronic Pain



23 years ago a car accident left Richard Hanbury with debilitating nerve pain that was so bad he was given just five years to live. While in recovery, he realized that a film was doing something to his brain that was providing greater pain relief than the morphine he was prescribed. It was this accidental discovery that inspired Hanbury to learn how he could use external neuromodulation to hack his own brain and cure his chronic pain. In this episode, StartUp Health’s Editor-in-Chief Logan Plaster sits down with Hanbury, CEO & Founder of Sana Health, to discuss his wearable device that reproduces that same neuromodulation in an effort to end all chronic pain.
