And her tactics worked - in 2018, a large life science services company acquired Seeker Health with Sandra as the sole owner. In this Book Club, Sandra will discuss her journey as a founder and share the importance of grounding your mindset on customer needs instead of trying to create hype and fictitious valuations.
