7 | Collecting Mistakes With Thompson Aderinkomi

Listen to the Tech.MN Podcast on Apple, Spotify, and Google.

On Episode 7 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and Jac Stark, community manager of Tech.MN welcome Thompson Aderinkomi, founder of Nice Healthcare, on The Tech.MN Podcast to talk about his collection of mistakes and where they’ve landed him. Bonus: He throws out an Aragron reference for the LOTR fans out there.

Thompson takes us on his journey through starting new companies and what he’s learned including market timing, value propositions, and market segments. His story is the healthcare version of an action feature film complete with many quotable moments.

As Thompson shares his timeline with us it becomes more and more clear that his story is just beginning with the launch of Nice Healthcare from a stronger position than his previous company. We chat about his obsession with company culture, the support of the MN tech and startup community, and where the name ‘Nice Healthcare’ comes from.

Hype Time

The next company in our BETA Startup Showcase series is: Thaddeus Medical

Protecting temperature sensitive medical products in transit through smart, reusable packaging.

Tell us the story of how and why you started your company.
I learned about the serious harm to patients that can occur through the improperly controlling and tracking temperature of clinical specimens while I was a Research Associate at Mayo Clinic. As Mayo has outstanding protocols to protect patients, they reject / refuse to test specimens if they are not received at the appropriate temperature. As medical errors are the 3rd biggest killer in the US, it is not unreasonable to think that this is sometimes overlooked at other hospitals especially outside the United States. If there was a better way to control and track temperature for individual clinical specimens, there would be a lot less risk to harming the patient. The same is true for therapeutics, with all the biological therapies that are being sent to patients homes, a solution is needed to protect the therapeutics and provide a better experience to the patient.

What’s your most recent success or milestone hit?
We have DEMO units!!! Fill out the form on our website if your Hospital or Pharmacy would like to try it: Thaddeus Med

Where do you see your startup in 1 year?
Hopefully no longer a startup, but 3rd party tested and approved moving also into the transportation and storage of transplanted organs.
