At a time when Medtronic is celebrating the life and legacy of our founder, the late Earl Bakken, we should remind ourselves that Medtronic was also once a start-up – over sixty years ago. Today, as a leader in the world of medical technology, it is crucial for us to remember our humble beginnings, and to keep our doors and our minds open to innovation and collaboration with exciting new companies”, Rob ten Hoedt, Executive Vice-President and President, EMEA, Medtronic.
