The Medical Startup inspires people through stories about medical entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation globally. Created in 2015, we love inspiring through content at the intersections of medical innovation, social impact and creativity, as seen through the eyes of Louise Teo, an Australian medical doctor.

We also celebrate the journeys of people who venture outside of healthcare work to pursue fulfilling multifaceted careers. Uniting STEMM industries with their creative, problem-solving roots helps people feel fulfilled at work and life, and realise their full potential, no matter their talents and backgrounds.

The Medical Startup has advised and consulted startups, hospitals, corporates and innovation portfolios internationally, and created organic content for an engaged worldwide audience. We deeply care about purposeful impact in healthcare through storytelling, advocacy, and quality care. Perhaps entrepreneurship is a tool for the wellbeing of healthcare workers. Or maybe you’re inspired to create change through design and startup thinking, but don’t know where or how to start.

This site believes you can do it.
