A candid discussion with Adam Little, DVM where we dissect pressing topics regarding trends and practices in technology, innovation, and entrepreneurism in the veterinary space.
Adam Little works at the intersection of accelerating technologies and veterinary medicine to help solve some of our world’s biggest problems. His entrepreneurial approach to global animal health creates more opportunities for veterinarians to tackle challenges ranging from companion animal medicine to food security and infectious disease spread.
As a champion for the evolution of his profession, Little sees a near future in which real-time, personalized medicine for each animal on this planet is possible. And he believes veterinarians are the drivers of that future, leading global change that will benefit every man, woman, child, and animal.
Little found his passion during veterinary school, identifying a number of challenges in the veterinary space for both those providing and receiving care, and became motivated to rethink how we can provide the best care possible. He went on to lead the team creation of the first IBM Watson project in the veterinary space, which grew to nearly 100 people. As founder and president of Exponential Vet Inc.—a consultancy create to help bridge the gap between early-stage technology companies and animal health—he works with clients in the areas of telemedicine, point of care diagnostics, sensors, and data analytics. He has recently accepted a position as a faculty member at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences where he will serve as Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Little holds a graduate degree from Ontario Veterinary College and completed the Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association and Veterinarians Without Borders, and is a consultant with Exponential Organizations.

This is an amazing episode! Very well done. I do think it is time for technology to be animal and service focused, not human focused. As a User Researcher I hope to be part of this change.
