Who We Are

Our team includes an aerospace engineer, a Six Sigma leader, a professor, and a history buff. We have two former firefighters, multiple entrepreneurs, University of Wisconsin grads, and a chemical engineer. We excel in quality and systems efficiency, customer development, and process; we’re storytellers, community advocates, and — of course — Packers fans.

Why We Do
What We Do

We’re at the cusp of true, systemic change in healthcare and beyond. Together we can cross the threshold.

By nurturing internal ideas as well as harnessing the power of outside disruptors, we’ll lower the cost of healthcare, improve it, and steer its future. We’ll create new jobs, attract talent, and keep local entrepreneurs right here in the Midwest. And we’ll make a global impact as an innovator led by and for our community.
