& Why Healthcare Tech is an Utterly Frightening Place for Startups


Yesterday I had a moment of what I like to call startupfreude — guilty pleasure derived from watching another startup get pummeled by fate. In this scenario, a healthcare startup building Google Glass apps raised $16m in funding just days before Google Glass went on indefinite sales hiatus. Oops.

If you’ve built a startup and never experienced startupfreude, congratulations — you’ve either had a much smoother startup experience than the rest of us, or are a better person than I am.
