Mission

To build a global health innovation ecosystem by connecting startups, strategic partners, and communities.

Why Healthcare?

We spent years researching the root cause of the major systemic challenges across the region and in nearly every case, everything came down to healthcare. This was even the case prior to COVID-19 but has become even more apparent now. By building collaborative bridges designed to improve the mind, body, and soul of our communities, we can improve the world.

Now, it’s time to come together and make it happen.

History of ScaleHealth

ScaleHealth has been on quite a journey since we originally came up with the idea almost four years ago. At that time, we felt that Southern California tech companies didn’t have a voice in state and national conversations simply because no one was asking us what we thought or needed. In our opinion, our entrepreneurs needed to become more visible – to play a role in national conversations – in order to really grow. In other words, in order to scale.

Over that first year we did some things that worked well, we also did some things that were, as they say, “learning experiences”. However, there was always something missing. While it’s great to have entrepreneurs and elected officials getting together and talk about solving systemic challenges like healthcare, a means of implementation was sorely lacking. Who would benefit, how would they benefit, and how would we measure it? These were all questions that we were asking ourselves.

The solution, when it came, came quickly… the community.

Entrepreneurs and governments are often trying to tackle many of the same issues but how their solutions are delivered and implemented is really where the rubber meets the road. How can we insure that the biggest challenges in the health industry are being addressed by the best solutions and getting into the hands of community members who need them most.

By incorporating community into our mission, everything became clear. Entrepreneurs develop solutions to issues that we (the community) are facing every day and governments (and decision makers at large) are the fuel that can empower implementation and progress.

Our Team

This picture is of our team very early on in the empty space that would soon become our Los Angeles HQ. Even then, we were focused on importance of our mission and the potential impact we could have in driving health outcomes forward.
