Podcast #10: Bill Taranto – the Wolf of Merck

In our latest podcast, we talk to Bill Taranto, President and General Partner of the Merck Global Health Innovation Fund. The son of a career Air Force pilot, Bill grew up in Florida. In the early 80s, Bill swapped sailing and boat racing for New York and Wall Street. After a couple of years in healthcare investment, Bill was offered to join Johnson & Johnson and started putting capital to work in digital health long before anybody else (though at the time it was vaguely known as ‘IT adjacency’). The move to Merck came years later in 2010, when Bill got the opportunity to open his own venture capital shop. Bill talks to us about the early days of health tech investment, the difficulty of putting data to proper use, the holy grail of physician adoption and his unique approach to investing in this space. We also learn about Bill’s passion for music and entertainment, and that even though he can’t carry a tune (so he says), in another life, he would have loved to be a musician.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
