Setting the revenue budget can easily be the year's most important decision ... http://onforb.es/1nsuDOi
Setting the year’s revenue budget is a risk/reward decision. If we shoot high and hit we leverage our success. The downside is leveraged, too. The best entrepreneurs know how to play to win and minimize the downside, too.

The idea of doing well by doing good is always a bit suspect for me ... http://onforb.es/1YClChi
The annual Forbes Healthcare Summit put the difficult relationship between healthcare and capitalism in the spotlight. Many people are uncomfortable with healthcare enterprises that are run purely for profit and create great wealth. But the profit incentive is vital to the innovation that U.S. healthcare greatly needs.

Dialing down the hype and hot money in the venture world could be a good thing ... http://onforb.es/1NlV0zh
Square's IPO at a 40% price discount to its last private financing supports the view that the unicorn bubble may soon deflate. Much of the discussion has focused on the impact on investors. I’m more concerned about what will happen to entrepreneurs.

Just back from the Slush venture conference in Helsinki. A lot of great stuff happening ... http://onforb.es/1MtDN31
The Nordic countries have a vibrant entrepreneurial scene, based on strength in gaming, digital/mobile/social media, and leading products in substantial niche markets. 15,000 people gather in Helsinki each November to build the momentum.

As individuals, we are sometimes patients, and sometimes consumers, but we are always customers, and healthcare providers that embrace that view will do better in long run.

A conversation with one of our CEOs about Slack and similar things ... http://onforb.es/1KCKUp6
The way people work is changing, driven by technology, a changing economy, and a rising generation. This creates big opportunity for those who master the new game and build the tools and platforms, and peril for those who don't.

My annual post on prospects for the new year ...
The received wisdom of the start-up ecosystem is on thin ice in 2016. More than ever, more than ever, entrepreneurs and investors will need to look at a broader field of industries and business models and discard old precepts to capture the emerging opportunities.

I am excited about the progress happening in digital therapeutics ... http://onforb.es/1YYFHAo
Digital therapeutics have made surprising progress. This is good news, because digital therapeutics are typically cheap, and they have shown impressive ability to change behavior, one of the most important challenges in healthcare.

Can the Eastern turtle catch up to the Western hare?  http://onforb.es/1MpvCa2
The Bay Area is gaining ground in digital healthcare investing (see chart below). Three years ago, Boston and the Bay Area were on par. Now the Bay Area is 2x Boston or New York. What’s happening?

Female CEOs do not find the tech industry to be as hostile as the press may have led you to think ... http://onforb.es/1kqd5kq
A panel of women CEOs discussed the special challenges they face at the NAV.VC annual investor conference. In addition to familiar concerns, several surprising perspectives emerged that raise hope for the potential for the tech industry to rapidly increase diversity.
