Society of Physician Entrepreneurs - SoPE
The Society of Physician Entrepreneurs (SoPE) is a global biomedical and healthcare innovation network with membership open to all healthcare professionals, entrepreneurs and industry stakeholders. SoPE was founded in 2011 by three physicians who shared a common vision - to empower physicians and other professionals to innovate healthcare through entrepreneurship. Four years later, SoPE continues to gain momentum with sixteen chapters across the United States, Turkey, China and the United Arab Emirates, as well as industry partners who directly support our members efforts. Members include doctors, nurses, dentists, healthcare entrepreneurs, investors, engineers, academics, IT professionals and industry representatives. What brings them together? Our community members share a common focus - working at the crossroads of innovation and commercialization to make a difference in healthcare. SoPE provides a platform for members to accelerate and catalyze innovation, as well as a separate supporting 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Foundation for scholarship and philanthropic endeavors to advance healthcare.
