Among the many and ever growing amount of industries one may get into, some seem to be more promising and some seem to be less of a hit. Years ago, the big waves of cell phone and internet created no short supply of legends of people in these two industries. With the tremendous force of a rising industry, opportunities are abundant and even those remotely related are able to claim a seat in the business world.
What is the next big wave? We see EXCITE in healthcare. As an industry of over $3 trillion ($3,000,000,000,000) market size in the U.S. alone, healthcare represents a tremendous amount of opportunities for people from all disciplines, many of which are unknown and unexplored to student and young professionals like us.
And we have a conference for that. Our EXCITE2015 aims to bring together some of the top minds from the healthcare industry, with a focus on e-health and wearable technologies, to share their unique personal experience and invaluable insights into the industry. With their stories, our conference is designed to help students from all backgrounds and programs to find a path of their own in the healthcare industry. We will feature speakers with cross-disciplinary experience and their stories in how they get into the industry.
