“I’d like to see more operators and administrators actively look for new technology and start piloting them. Have more realistic expectation of pilots and innovation, and be okay with it not working. It’s the learning that matters.

For the entrepreneurs, keep at it. We need innovation. We can be doing better and we need the talent, ideas and breakthroughs.”

“By investing and supporting innovation in this space. Mentoring entrepreneurs, encourage others to invest in this space, implore operators to think bigger.”
