Join our discussion on Thursday, 29th August with Sebastien Gaudin, CEO & Co-founder at The CareVoice, Co-founder of StartupCare. We will discuss how Shanghai-based international health insurtech grows from ground to Series A.
Sebastien's career has been dedicated to healthcare and new businesses. With an academic background in pharmaceuticals and business, Sebastien Gaudin worked as business development and marketing leader on multiple therapeutic and geographic markets at Sanofi for twelve years, taking a management position within Sanofi China in 2011. Working with Chinese Ministry of Health representatives and hospital leaders, Sebastien soon noticed how wary Chinese patients were of their national healthcare system. Thinking of how over the past decade in China online consumer reviews has solved trust issues prevailing in other sectors, he founded The CareVoice, a Shanghai-based start-up, with the mission of transforming healthcare experience to be more consumer-centric. Thanks to a successful pivot into health insurtech and its unique mobile-based SaaS platform digitizing healthcare and insurance journey, CareVoice has been working with multiple insurers to unleash their value. They can finally become true health partners of insured members. More recently, after graduating from Ping An first accelerator program and soft-launching the first health benefit and insurance for start-ups in China, Sebastien co-founded StartupCare a new insurtech dedicated to insurance and benefits for start-ups so that entrepreneurs and their teams can devote their energy to successfully grow their businesses!
