The October 3, 2017 edition of Victoria Times Colonist features Prestigious entrepreneur honour for Starfish Medical founder, an interview by Andrew Duffy with StarFish Medical CEO and Founder, Scott Phillips.  The article shares Scott’s thoughts on winning the EY Canada Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2017 Pacific Technology category on September 29, 2017.

Duffy notes “The award, considered one of the world’s most prestigious business honours for entrepreneurs, comes on the heels of Phillips being named 2017 Technology Champion at this year’s Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council awards.”

In the interview, Phillips explains the special meaning of the award: “When I frame what we are doing, it’s usually in the context of the medical [industry]. But when you go through the exercise and apply for these awards, it forces you to think in pure business terms,” he said. “It gives me a good feeling to be recognized in more than just the tech expertise that we bring, but also in our business achievements.”
