Episode 34: Being Agile at 130

This week we spoke to Josh Ghaim, CTO of Johnson & Johnson. We were interested in how at around 130 years old, one of the largest organisations on the planet can stay nimble, forward facing, and seek out innovation in new places. We met Josh at the Hello Tomorrow conference last year, and were interested in how important that kind of face time is with budding healthcare innovators. We were keen to break down the role of J&J Innovation, an arm of the company that seeks to develop healthcare through entrepreneurship. This includes the international JLabs and JLinx accelerators.

Josh also spoke about their Africa Innovation Challenge, which offers budding founders up to $100,000, in the areas of early childhood development and maternal health to name a few.
