Quintus Liu: Healthera, breaking down barriers between patients and pharmacies
Quintus Liu is the founder and CEO of Healthera Ltd, a healthcare technology company based in Cambridge. His entrepreneurial journey started in 2014 when he established the Cambridge operations of a Silicon Valley-based venture capital that invests in university graduate entrepreneurs.
In this episode of The Invested Investor, Quintus expresses that he believes building a team is the hardest part of a start-up journey. Quintus and Peter discuss how hard it has been to penetrate the UK pharmaceutical market. However, advice and mentoring from the Healthera board have helped them with challenges.
He founded Healthera with two classmates during his final year at Cambridge University in 2015 out of an idea to get patients to safely take their medicines on time. Since then Healthera has acquired £2 million of funding from investors and government contracts and released a ground breaking platform that connects tens of thousands of patients and hundreds of pharmacies around the UK and Ireland.
