The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SOPE), a global biomedical and healthcare innovation network, was founded by three physicians in early 2011 as a non-profit member organization with a separate supporting tax-exempt foundation. Membership is open to both medical professionals and other healthcare stakeholders.
SOPE seeks to make a better world through improved healthcare delivery as it helps launch new businesses that increase job creation and global competition. Healthcare improvements include better treatment, greater and faster access and lower costs.
SOPE is unique in its make-up, leadership and mission and is at the forefront of realizing and increasing the speed-to-market of healthcare innovation. The society is the only international organization founded and led by physicians supporting physicians and other medical professionals on the front lines of healthcare delivery who need help in bringing their ideas, inventions and innovations to life. SOPE is the only “go-to place” for gaining knowledge from experienced medical professional entrepreneurs, as well as for learning about available sources of education and support services that help physicians and other medical professionals pursue an entrepreneurial path.
