It is with bittersweet regret that I announce the closure of Locumunity.
As a first time physician founder of a startup, I learned many lessons along the way, some quite costly. After 4 years of pouring in my blood, sweat and tears, I was unable to make this venture sustainable, personally and financially.
I am still passionate about this issue, but now realize that to fully solve a problem like this, you need timing, opportunity and luck to intersect , and sometimes that just doesn't happen.
Thank you to the >3000 physicians across North America that joined me on this journey and shared my vision of a transparent, tech-driven job marketplace for physicians.
Thank you to my mentors and investors (most were mentors turned investors) who believed in me even when things were tough.
Thank you to my family who sacrificed everything to support me.
I have returned to full time clinical practice at this time, but have been bitten by the entrepreneurial bug, and see many problems that require solutions in the healthcare space.
Until we meet again,
Physician | Founder
