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. We are building a new healthtech venture that will power innovative market access solutions for cell and gene therapy.

Who we’re looking for

We are assembling a team of healthcare entrepreneurs who are excited about building better solutions to help patients get access to transformational therapies, and are looking for a founding CEO to lead this venture.

As a Founder & CEO, you will build and scale a venture with an important mission from the ground up. If you are up for it, you will:

  • Own, articulate and drive the strategy and vision for the organization.
  • Build the first version of the product, onboard first customers and patients, and define the product/company’s roadmap. 
  • Build and lead a high caliber team; recruit and develop “A” player early hires.
  • Lead fundraising effort, in conjunction with current investors and the rest of the management team. 
  • Work closely with the investors/Board, communicating regularly.


  • Experience taking a business or product from 0 to 1; deep track record of entrepreneurship. 
  • Track-record of leading a business as a CEO, President, COO, Product Executive, Sales Executive, or GM with P&L ownership within an organization.
  • Understanding of the US healthcare space, interacting with pharma, payers, and/or patient data.
  • You have the desire to be a Co-Founder & CEO of a venture-backed start-up.

 What you’ll get: 

  • Significant founder equity in the new company
  • Competitive compensation
  • Market competitive health insurance and benefits
  • A chance to build a meaningful and impactful company from the ground up, with a significant head-start 

Please note: This is not an employee opportunity at Diagram Ventures. This is a newly incorporated company with initial Pre-Seed backing. As Co-Founder and CEO, you will be building the founding team, hiring the first employees, and raising initial capital.
