Episode 16 – From Disease to a Medical Device with Sean Hamilton
Sean Hamilton from War on Epilepsy is sharing with us its story and why his condition helped him to become an entrepreneur and create a medical devices company.
Sean is epileptic and he developed a device specifically for people with the same condition. This story is really powerful. Instead of just trying to live his life only, he is now trying to impact other peoples lives.
Sean is in the UK, so the Brexit can impact his project and we’ll talk about the compliance part of his project. Apparently, he already anticipated a lot of the issues and works with experts to be up-to-date.
About Sean Hamilton
My life has been a Rollercoaster from, at just 18 providing IT Support in a serviced desk space which resulted in experiencing the ups and downs of business as well as success and failure.
To even before that, with a Lifelong dream that I still have to this day of being a Paramedic, sadly due to many health challenges that was not & Is not possible, but my passion for helping people, Health, Medicine & Technology has not wavered.
My journey so far Includes the Peter Jones’ National Enterprise Academy in Amersham then onto to pitch at “Prysm Group’s Business show Midas Touch back in November 2010, was their youngest ever pitcher at just 19 having received praise & many offers of support from an incredible panel made up of the one and only Chelsey Baker an incredible serial entrepreneur, mentor, Model, Presenter, host and columnist, Rachel Elnaugh the founder of Red Letter days, Roy Seaman of Franchise Development services Last but by absolutely no means least Jonathan Pfahl MD and founder of the UK’s No1 Mentoring and Private funding organisation: Rockstar Group whom i took up the offer to join forces with & thus Rockstar Youth was born, The Experience working alongside Jonathan Is one I would not trade for the world!
Entrepreneurship is a lifelong journey full of twists & turns and different paths it has challenges certainly & rewards undoubtedly, It’s what you do with both that determines the person you will be.
Age & qualifications should not determine how experienced you are or how Succesful you are going to be, experience & success come by doing!
you win some, you lose some, Life isn’t just about the successes it’s as much about the failures. practice really does make perfect & don’t ever be afraid to ask for help.
I am a strong believer in “callaboration as a pose to competition, afterall working together we can achieve more”
You can’t do it alone & there is No “I” in team!
Certainly don’t be afraid to take that leap because Life isn’t about what if…
