Spring 2021 Entrepreneurship Summit

April 20 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

“Lessons Learned from My Journey” – How Mark Essex started with a label maker and developed into a national provider of healthcare software

About this Event

“I bet my husband could create a software program to automate this process.”

With those words, the beginnings of Netalytics, LLC took root.

When Mark Essex graduated from Clemson with a computer science degree, he and his wife, Karen, moved to Atlanta to pursue job opportunities. She took a position as a methadone counselor in a clinic operated entirely on pen and paper with no computer system. After handwriting takeout labels day in and day out, Karen uttered those now famous words that set the wheels of fate in motion. That’s where Methasoft, the initial product offering, was born as a label-writing program for a methadone clinic in 1995.

Now in 2021, Netalytics is a complete electronic medical record (EMR) specifically designed for medication-assisted treatment facilities where addictions to heroin and prescription opiates are treated.

Mark’s story contains practical learnings and insights useful for everyone…from budding entrepreneurs to established business owners to those navigating a venture capital buyout. Netalytics has seen it all for the past 26 years and Mark has been leading from the front.

Come to The Platform at Greer’s Spring 2021 Summit and be inspired by the story of how Karen’s words led to the creation of a market-leading healthcare software provider in Greer! Please note that the program will begin no later than 5:15 pm.
