In this episode, I speak with Joseph Mocanu, Founder and Managing Director of Verge HealthTech Fund, a venture capital fund investing exclusively, and globally, in impactful healthcare technologies at the earliest stages. Joseph attended the University of Toronto both as an undergraduate and graduate student, earning a BSc in molecular genetics and molecular biology and a PhD in medical biophysics. During graduate school, he also served as Director of Research and Development for a medical device company he founded, and based on this experience he decided to attend business school. After earning his MBA, he served in various business-related roles in China, Canada, and Singapore, where he saw that start-up companies working to make healthcare more affordable and accessible were having difficulty securing funding. He founded Verge to address this need. We’ll talk about all these experiences and of course find out about what his job is like.
