The Business of Innovation

By bringing together clinical, capital and corporate leaders – all key stakeholders in the development and commercialization of novel technologies and therapies – the Ophthalmology Innovation Summit (OIS) has a clear objective: to act as an innovation accelerant, helping convert conceptual sparks into glowing success.

The brainchild of ophthalmologist and venture capitalist Emmett Cunningham (Blackstone Life Sciences) and experienced conference producer Craig Simak, OIS fully sprang into life when two fellow venture capitalists – William Link of Versant Ventures/Flying L Partners and ophthalmologist Gil Kliman of InterWest Partners – came on board to co-chair the initial programs. OIS had found a recipe for success.

The flagship “OIS@AAO” began in 2009 and – a decade on – will attract 1,200 leaders in ophthalmology with the common goal of addressing unmet vision needs. For 2019, the full-day (6:45 am–6:30 pm) program on October 10 covers everything from the game-changing technologies of today and tomorrow, to opportunities and challenges for healthcare leaders, to markets updates – not to mention a “Keynote Conversation” between Alex Gorsky, Chairman & CEO of Johnson & Johnson, and summit co-chair Link.

Here, we ask seasoned OIS experts to get us up to speed for OIS@AAO with notable approvals, business trends, and a glimpse of how the innovators of the future are being forged.
