The demand for healthcare will continue to grow in the coming years. An ageing population and increase in lifestyle diseases will be the reason. The government will consequently provide more money for healthcare. Nevertheless, businesses will have a hard time meeting the demand on account of the mounting personnel shortage. Moreover, they will often have to comply with many complex laws and regulations. As a healthcare entrepreneur, you therefore want an advisor who can strategize with you and who is familiar with the challenges in this sector.
