Expanding the impact of Rock Health’s community
I’m thrilled to be joining the Rock Health team as VP, Portfolio and Operations. My company, Kinsights, was one of the first startups to join Rock Health in 2010 and through Rock Heath, we received the support and resources to guide our company to a successful exit with Care.com in early 2016.
Rock Health’s mission has always been to fund and support entrepreneurs working at the intersection of healthcare and technology. Digital health as a whole is still a very young industry; it simply doesn’t have the same kind of support that general consumer and enterprise tech has. This is where the power of community comes in. There’s nowhere else you will find 50+ founders dedicated to digital health and eager to give feedback and advice to one another. Need to figure out marketing your B2B2C product? Talk to Sean Duffy. Thinking about contracting with hospitals? Find Kevin MacDonald. This is what makes our portfolio so great. This is why the power of community remains one of our biggest value-adds to our companies.
In this new role, I’ll use my expertise as a digital health founder and Rock Health entrepreneur, as well as my long-standing connections to this community, to further connect the Rock Health network and expand its impact. I’ll make sure that our portfolio companies have access to all the valuable resources Rock Health has to offer, and connect them to strategic partners or advisors. I also plan to build our community and programs to foster strong relationships among our portfolio companies. I couldn’t be more excited to get started.
