Hey people ✋,

Happy Saturday! I’m psyched to share with you the third episode of The Takeoff’s telehealth podcast series: an interview with Saurabh Bhansali, Partner at Health Velocity Capital (a leading healthcare-focused growth equity firm). Saurabh currently sits on the Board of Directors at HealthJoy, Zipari, and Jvion. He is also a Board Observer at Ginger.

Special thanks to our first podcast guest, Russ Glass, who made the intro to Saurabh and our second guest, Guy Friedman, for encouraging me to make more intro requests. I had an amazing time talking to an investor in this episode (Russ and Guy are both operators), which gave a refreshing perspective.

In this episode, Saurabh and I discuss some of the familiar topics I’ve discussed with guests in the earlier episodes such as go-to-market strategies, market imbalances, advice for students, and more.

We hope you enjoy the podcast :)
