The 2016 MedTech Boston 40 Under 40 Healthcare Innovators


Yvonne Braun, MD
Consultant, Medical Advisor, and Entrepreneur
Yvonne Braun, MDAfter completing her MD in Germany, two research fellowships at MGH, and a surgical training program in trauma and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Yvonne Braun decided to stray from the traditional clinical career path. “I realized that my research could have a much broader influence on patient outcome than treating only one patient after another in the hospital setting,” Dr. Braun explains of her choice to join Boston’s vibrant startup scene.

She began working as a medical consultant for early stage startups in Boston and Germany, and joined MassChallenge as both a mentor and judge. It was during her time at MassChallenge that she began advising for Ludopia, a Venezuelan startup aiming to gamify surgical training, and SprintLink Medical, Germany’s largest digital medical marketing agency.

With 8+ years of international medical experience in various fields under her belt, Dr. Braun is about to launch her own business. “My vision is to accelerate the global healthcare development through a direct and quick information exchange between medical experts and the healthcare industry,” Braun explains of her new venture. She’s also been tapped as the new Surgical Global Marketing Manager at Siemens Healthcare.
