Hi all, was wondering how the venture arms at a large hospital networks (e.g. Mayo Clinic) stack up against large pharma venture arms (J&J innovation) vs Family offices vs pure VC firms?

This is kind of apples to oranges. Corporate venture capital has a slightly different risk profile vs. VC. Hospitals might focus more on delivery innovation and health tech. Pharma will focus more on innovation happening on the drug discovery front. Most upside is at a pure VC. All other’s profits get absorbed by the company/family.


Thanks for that.

Aside from scope of target companies, do you have any thoughts on how/if the vetting process would differ and if corporate would still play an active role in advising startups?

Hello all,
I’m stuck in a bit of a hole.
In short, I used to be an engineering manager that led a team of 15. Two years ago I changed companies. The new position I took was a huge step down to senior design engineer however the pay was actually the same and the benefits better. I thought it would be a good chance to get me out of the toxic company and then reset my career however, I’m struggling to now get a job as an engineering manager again.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi guys, I’m interviewing at Guidehouse USA, and I was given a PowerPoint and excel sheet for a case study. Some of the questions asked in the PowerPoint deck technically require me to study the TA and have a detailed understanding of existing drugs on the market.
Is this how we are expected to answer the questions? Or do I just draw a framework to show how I will get the answers? I’m not sure if I’m reading too much into this!
Anyone who has done such an interview please help?
