The VentureFizz Podcast: Simon Lorenz - Co-Founder and Co-CEO of Klara

For the 99th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Simon Lorenz, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Klara.

Simon comes from a long family history of medical doctors and it was his time working in a hospital during his teenage years that prompted him to take a different career path. He recognized the inefficiencies and challenges within the healthcare industry and it became his passion. A passion to make a difference by improving the healthcare industry.

Klara is a venture-backed company that was founded in 2013 with a mission to transform healthcare communication so that every patient can receive great care. Its HIPAA-compliant messaging platform makes it easy for healthcare providers to communicate with their patients and with each other.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • All the details on Klara and how they are improving the healthcare industry and making it more efficient through their communication platform.
  • Discovery-based selling and why it is important for your business, especially for landing early adopter customers.
  • How to know when you have product-market fit.
  • Figuring out your pricing strategy.
  • Avoiding the Series A funding crunch.
  • Plus, a lot more.
