What role does design play nowadays?

Design plays an extremely important role in our field – and it is not just about developing good-looking products. It also shapes our decision-making, what we think and how we feel. Efficient, user-focused design should always be the goal, especially in digital health, because few patients would continue to use, say, an app that did not offer a fully satisfying experience.

How important is communication?

The subject of communication has always fascinated me. In my studies, I learned that “one cannot not communicate,” as communication theorist Paul Watzlawick once said. This statement really shaped my perspective because it narrowed things down to the core concepts of context and subtext. In working with our portfolio companies, I advise them to be open for conversations and transparent in their communications.

What is your superpower?

I’ve always been a very curious person and never suffered from boredom when I was a child. And as an adult, I always try to stay on top of new trends and innovations in my field. What keeps me going day in and day out? My curiosity!
