The Podcast

Nov 19, 2019

On Episode 12 Kevin McArdle, owner of SureSwift Capital and Jac Stark, community manager of Tech.MN, welcome Lori Most, founder of BackpackEMR, on The Tech.MN Podcast to talk about going from coder to founder. 

Lori shares her story of how joining her sister, a physician’s assistant, for a medical trip to Peru ignited the idea for an offline peer-to-peer electronic medical record (EMR) software product. She talks about becoming a founder, building software, and their latest contracts with Nairobi County in Kenya and Timmy Global Health.

We discuss the challenges of fundraising as a female founder and Lori’s first-hand experience to weeding out investors to find really great ones.
