What You Need

Empower Your Health Startup With The Entrepreneur's Doctor As Your Strategic CMO

The Strategic Chief Medical Officer (CMO) service is designed specifically for bootstrapped pre-seed health startups looking to streamline their route to product-market fit & business growth. A higher-level CMO service is also available for scaleups.


So you have a business or startup idea to improve healthcare or the wider health & wellness sector, whether through digital health, healthtech, ecommerce, education, coaching, consulting, or traditional pharmaceutical & medical device solutions. You may have been inspired by your personal health journey, or after seeing a problem when caring for your loved one.

As an Entrepreneur without health or medical expertise, you're looking for the strategic insights, expertise, and professional network that an experienced global expert can offer. You know that without it, your startup will have a tough time securing funding or gaining traction in the global health sector that demands trust, experience, and credibility. As an early-stage founder, you're bootstrapping and don't have the budget to recruit a high calibre Chief Medical Officer full-time. You could bring on a medical co-founder, but not all health professionals have the time or desire to leave clinical practice and join a startup. You could also bring on board advisors, but are they deeply engaged with you and your business on a regular one-to-one basis? Are they empowering you with the knowledge, skills and network you need?



Dr Behrooz Behbod, aka The Entrepreneur's Doctor, is on a mission to help you, the Entrepreneur, to create a healthier, happier world through your ventures. Appreciating the needs of early-stage health startups working their way to seed and series funding, built on his 20+ years of international experience across health and business, Dr Behbod prescribes a course of Startup Therapy to help launch your business on the optimal growth trajectory. 

Also known as a part-time or fractional CMO, Dr Behbod can serve as your startup's Chief Medical Officer at a surprisingly affordable rate (no equity required). He does this through his own innovative and scalable business model to be able to serve a highly select number of mission-driven Founders.
