With their mobile-based solutions, Yosko provides access to the electronic medical records, facilitates exchanges between physicians, and improves care team communication. Sounds like a great Watson for Healthcare solution!

My favorite Infographic of the Week! What does Success look like for a Mobile App Startup!

 

I now get to manage IBM's Global Entrepreneur program.  I love learning about the new start-up business models and that's why this Infographic made my top of the list for this week!

Fascinating facts:

  • Top performers spent 14% of their time on marketing but did you know that less than 52% of start-ups save any money for Marketing?
  • Did you know that 68% earned less than $5K on their first successful app?
