The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley

Elizabeth Holmes was going to revolutionise the medical industry with Theranos, a company that specialised in the creation of miniature labs for blood testing. At its peak, it was valued at $9 billion. Holmes’ work drew her comparisons with Steve Jobs and other Silicon Valley innovators until the entire project crumbled under accusations of fraud.

As Holmes sought to market her company to investors, industry regulators and journalists began to suspect her claims. The ensuing investigations revealed the seedy underside of Theranos and the practices it used to woo investors. The fallout from the collapse of the firm affects more than the reputation of Elizabeth Holmes. It may also forever change the way medical technology is marketed.

The Inventor: Out For Blood In Silicon Valley investigates the unravelling of the Theranos saga, examining those responsible for the deception and how they carried it out.
