Investors are making tough demands on entrepreneurs | Destination ATA

"You want something to pay off big," said Barbara Lubash, managing director of the investment firm Versant Ventures.
In fact, when it comes to health IT, she said, her firm turns down "nine of 10 - and maybe more" of all requests for funding, and that's because most are intended for a niche audience that health plans won't reimburse. Lubash and Jack Young, senior investment manager for Qualcomm Ventures, took part in the Monday Industry Executive Panel "Financing Telemedicine," which was moderated by Molly Coye, MD, chief innovation officer for the UCLA Health System Institute for Innovation in Health. In addition to market size, that includes "something that solves a top 1, 2 or 3 problem for decision makers," Lubash said. "It has to be compelling." For example, with the rise of accountable care organizations, reducing readmissions is a big issue for hospitals. "In the past, it was more about getting revenue," Lubash said. When it comes to mHealth, convincing an investor to provide funding can be a difficult task, Lubash said. "In general, they tend to be (products) with narrow applications and short lifecycles," she said. "It's not a sustainable model."
