Cell and gene therapies are revolutionizing the world of medicine. However, these products are facing massive reimbursement challenges as their cost and value profile are incompatible with existing health insurance models. There is a huge opportunity to help redesign the reimbursement approach for high cost medicine through technology and data. If you are excited about building better solutions to help patients get access to transformational medicine, join us in launching a new health tech venture to power innovative market access solutions for cell and gene therapy.

We are looking for a health tech entrepreneur with a network and experience in market access and outcomes-based contracting at pharma organizations.

Who we’re looking for

We are assembling a team of healthcare entrepreneurs and executives, and we are now looking for a founding CEO to lead this venture.

  • Build and lead a high caliber team by facilitating the recruitment, retention, and professional development of “A” player early hires.
  • Articulate and drive the strategic vision of the organization; execute, build upon, and scale the business’ existing timeline/product roadmap. Empower the team to take ownership of this vision and drive the company’s success.  
  • In conjunction with current investors and the rest of the management team, lead the fundraising efforts. 
  • Work closely with the investors/Board, communicating regularly.
