Description

Elizabeth becomes a celebrity as Theranos breaks out of stealth mode and onto the main stage. The media can't get enough, and neither can many investors as Theranos Wellness Centers start popping up at Walgreens. To take advantage of the moment, Elizabeth spends millions on advertising, recruiting the same agency as Apple and even an Oscar-winning director. But real patients are now getting Theranos tests, and for some the results are shocking.

I am studying this in my Master's of raied course as an example of bad ethics but also as an example of a unicorn of a company that raised so much capital in the first few years - scary and concerning. Also can't help wondering if it will change how people view the term Blonde Ambition - she had tunnel vision that her company and product would succeed.

So many people have had their credibility destroyed just by being associated with this horrible person. It would be hilarious if not for the consequences of Holmes' lie.

This is an allegorical tale of today’s corporate environment. The “story” sales so much better than the “product “.
