The Next Visionary Entrepreneurs In Health Tech

For each of the nearly 11,000 health technology companies in the Health 2.0 Source Database, there have been countless more that have failed. Sometimes it’s small companies with good ideas that never quite get off the ground — remember Zeo? — and sometimes it’s big, well-funded experiments that suddenly fall flat, like the recent closing of Qliance. There is no magic formula for success in this industry, and the so-called “graveyard” of health technology companies continues to grow. Yet, somehow, there exists this legion of entrepreneurs that never fails to produce the next passionate CEO willing to reach for those deceptively low-hanging health care fruit.

This year, at Health 2.0’s 11th Annual Fall Conference, the crowd favorite 2 CEOs and a President Panel returns to our main stage. We’ll hear from three visionary entrepreneurs who are tackling three diverse segments of health care: consumer health and wellness, data transparency, and patient education. Saeju Jeong, the CEO of Noom, will share how Noom’s intelligent health coaching apps that focus on fitness and nutrition are staying relevant in a crowded market that includes the likes of tracking giant MyFitnessPal, or the health coaching app Vida. David Vivero, the CEO of Amino, will also appear to discuss how Amino is tackling the long-standing transparency problem in health care by using data to help consumers find better doctors, book appointments, and estimate their costs. Finally, this year’s addition of a president comes in the form of Shradha Agarwal of Outcome Health. The Chicago-based startup has reportedly raised more than $500 million at a valuation of $5 billion, which means we’ll have no shortage of questions for Agarwal about scale, growth, and how Outcome’s patient education technology is actually helping to improve health outcomes.

Register now for the 11th Annual Fall Conference to join us, and to hear these leaders’ stories.
