Video: Innovation Coffee Break: Rebecca Woodcock, Yamaha Motor Ventures

Rebecca Woodcock is a principal at Yamaha Motor Ventures and an alumna of 500 Startups, both as a former batch founder and Entrepreneur-in-Residence.

We sat down with Rebecca this week for our latest Innovation Coffee Break to get her thoughts on the big trends shaping the rapidly changing healthcare landscape amid COVID-19. 

There’s a lot to unpack here. From her work with the Obama administration to her current day investing as a CVC, Rebecca has valuable insights on everything from the ethics behind AI to the explosion of healthcare data in the home.

Hosted by 500’s Vijay Rajendran, this 30-minute conversation explores:

  • Why CVCs like Yamaha Motor Ventures are bullish on health tech in this time of uncertainty
  • How COVID-19 has both underscored the shortage of healthcare workers in the US today and the promise of healthcare in the home
  • Assessing data-driven companies vs. device-driven companies in the healthcare space
  • Using robotics & mobility to improve “human technology”
