After college, I worked with McKinsey & Co. under their Pharmaceutical & Medical Products vertical and this is where I learned about the problem of medicine non-adherence and that I would say was the first trigger towards working in the space to start my research and eventually set up Caredose.
The initial years were about a lot of research and interaction with patients, doctors, researchers, pharmacists. Conducted structured research with a sample size of 50 patients over a span of 8 months. I also ran a brick and mortar pharmacy for 2 years to understand and get familiar with the pharmacy prescription retail space.
For us Compliance and Licenses are what keeps us up at night, this one is a constant actually, mostly because of the category we work in.
