Memorable quotes from Jon Ingi Bergsteinsson:

“When you start working in MedTech, and you have experience from other parts of the life science industry, you start to realize how different it is from pharmaceuticals and other similar product developments like biotech, for example.

“It’s easier to innovate medical device technology.”

“Ease of use has a lot to do with the fact that you haven’t involved your end users well enough, or you haven’t involved the right end users.”

“When it really comes down to it, you can’t really help or facilitate growth and development in the industry without experiences and insights from other industries.”
