Regional Business Leader Emerging Markets & Market Access at Roche Diabetes Care Deutschland GmbH

Startupbootcamp Digital Health Berlin Mentor

Bernhard is a Regional Business Leader at Roche Diabetes Care. Roche Diabetes Care helps people with diabetes to get true relief. Having 10+ years experience in healthcare Bernhard had the pleasure of gaining intriguing insights into the healthcare system from various perspectives, for example developing disruptive digital infused solutions for mature and emerging markets, launching a global product in more than 20 countries or creating the global vision 2025.

Bernhard’s passion is to shape the future of healthcare. He is intrigued when it comes to the intersection of digital health and disease management. He is interested in ways that digital technology is used to improve or even to disrupt current business models, but more importantly to help patients to live a fulfilling and healthy life.

With this experience Bernhard started to share his knowledge by mentoring and investing in startups with digital health focus. He will support Startupboocamp Digital Health Berlin cohort in building great patient-centric startups (and not technology-centric startups). He believes in passionate people making a difference in the world and he is willing to join forces for that cause.
