3 Great Business Ideas for Aspiring Medipreneurs


In order to create success in your career, there tends to be a need for creativity and a willingness to think outside the box and find consumer trends and demands not just in this moment but in the future. This is where entrepreneurs tend to shine as they are known as the risk-takers out there. They see a potential product or service that they can carve out a space for, and they put their all into making it a success.

Well, those same principals can be applied to what’s called medipreneurs. A medipreneur is the medical industry’s answer to the traditional entrepreneur. It’s an individual who has an idea, a concept, a service that could benefit patients or even one that could help medical professionals do their job more effectively. They are willing to run with that idea from initial concept to its introduction to the market.

If you happen to be an aspiring medipreneur yourself but you’re having a hard time coming up with that one great idea that not only seems viable but also realistic, then you’ll want to read on. Here we’ll take a look at the top 3 business ideas that medipreneurs are pursuing.


In-Home Medication Assistant and Consultant for Seniors

As the baby boomer population continues to age, there will be a real strain placed on the current medical community. This large segment of the population will need more medical care and attention than they have up to this point, and with so many of them currently occupying the medical field right now but getting ready for retirement, experts predict a massive shortage of staff in the coming years. What this means is that there will be a need for new types of jobs in the field to help with providing care to this aging generation.

An in-home medication assistant and consultant specifically for seniors could be an excellent route to pursue. With this type of career, you’d be visiting your patients in their home to offer one-on-one consultations. You’ll be able to address their specific concerns and issues such as nutrition, taking their medication safely and on time, how to include physical activity in their routine, conducting a health assessment, and even identifying the signs of depression.


An Epigenetic Coach

With so many people now intrigued by the 23andMe genetic information they can gain, the next logical question is how they can use this information to their benefit. This is where an epigenetic coach can be of assistance.

Epigenetics, in a nutshell, is the study of genetic variations that can suppress gene expression. Through the information gathered from their 23andMe results, you can then create a personalized plan that helps them address such issues as stress, sleep patterns, hormones, nutrition, and so much more.


Supplement Design

Now, maybe you want to create something and make a product that benefits people in terms of their health. If that’s the case, there is always the route of supplements. According to statistics, the vitamin and nutritional supplement market had revenue of $31 billion last year in the United States. This year is on track to be even more. Consumers are incredibly invested in the overall health and wellness benefits that these products can offer, and it’s an industry that continues to offer a lot of growth.

Creating your own supplement blend that is able to address one specific health issue or a number of them can be a difficult and long road, but if you’ve got an idea and you’re ready to go all in, then it can be a great route for you. You'll need to work through the formulation stage, manufacturing, deciding what capsule type you want, as there are several different types of empty capsules that suit different target audiences. You’ll need to choose the delivery method you want to use, test the product, introduce it to market, and work through many other stages.

This can ultimately be the most time-consuming, labor-intensive, and just plain difficult route to take, but it can also be incredibly rewarding if you are successful in your launch.

A Small Look

As you can see, this is just a small look at the many ways you could pursue a career as a medipreneur in today’s current climate and conditions.
