Marion joined our MD Start team in 2019. She is the CEO of Ablacare, after having managed the execution of the first-in-human study and regulatory approvals in the E.U. and the U.S. for the company.
She enjoys MD Start’s fast-paced, close-to-the-ground approach. “My day-to-day is operational and hands-on, focused on building products and creating value for patients and clinicians with breakthrough innovations,” she says.
Marion also plays a big part in managing the MD Start deal flow, the identification and evaluation of the most promising ideas for incubation. She says that to get a full picture of an idea's potential, the MD Start team taps into collective intelligence, talking to people in different parts of the world who are entrepreneurs, purchasing managers, key opinion leaders and knowledgeable clinicians.
Prior to joining MD Start, Marion was the head of operations of Cardiologs Technologies, a French medtech start-up that uses artificial intelligence and cloud technology to provide advanced screening for atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders. Philips agreed in November 2021 to buy Cardiologs.
Marion holds a Bachelor in Biomedical Science from Imperial College London, and a Master’s in Management (major in Entrepreneurship) from HEC Paris.
