Medtronic CEO Rejects Notion that Company Only Innovates Through Acquisitions

Medtronic CEO Rejects Notion that Company Only Innovates Through Acquisitions
In the first of a series of video interviews as part of a wide-ranging interview in August, Medtronic CEO Omar Ishrak says his company's internal innovation remains strong.  

In August, the chief executive officer of Medtronic, the world's second-largest public medtech company by revenue, sat down for a wide ranging interview with MD+DI - everything from accountable care and risk-based contracts, to globalization and various therapies that the company has developed.

Over the next few days and weeks, we will present video snippets of that interview.

In the first of these, Omar Ishrak talks about innovation and responds to the question that large companies appear to be simply buying up innovative companies instead of developing something novel internally.
