Sven Jungmann: Medicine x Digital Tech x Business

Sven Jungmann is a medical doctor and now an entrepreneur and digital health expert.

Promoting health, growth and impact – that’s his goal as a physician.

What do you see when you think of a doctor of medicine? Probably an operating room or a doctor’s office. Dr. Sven Jungmann has chosen a different path. And has received one or two critical glances in return: Why would someone who has a top education not want to be a doctor after all? The career paths of physicians often look rigid and well-trodden. Dr. Jungmann shakes up our notion that if you study medicine, you will become a doctor and stay one.

Dr. Sven Jungmann is a former physician working in the world of digitization and innovation. Two goals drive him:

Sven Jungmann wants to show his colleagues that they can leave the beaten track and still remain true to their motivation. Because he still wants to help and heal people. But he no longer rushes through the emergency room to do it. Instead, he’s going to the roots: He’s working on innovations that improve the healthcare system for patients, doctors and nurses. That’s his second goal: to transform the healthcare industry so that he himself would want to work as a doctor again.

Innovative technologies can help us achieve greater health and humanity. Dr. Jungmann is convinced of this. In his speeches, Dr. Sven Jungmann also shows people who have nothing to do with medicine: You can stay true to your motivation and still create your own map for life. Whether as an individual or as a company in transition. A fulfilled existence characterized by growth & impact is possible!
