ABOUT US
We are entrepreneurs at heart, finding innovative ways to bring health solutions to more people.  Our purpose binds us while we bring solid track records in business model innovation, strategy, marketing, and go-to-market operations in the public health, life sciences, healthcare, and technology sectors.

FOUNDING PRINCIPLES

We are founded upon the fundamental belief that health is a skill which everyone can be empowered to learn

By enabling people stay healthy and/or returning them to full health, we reduce the flow and costs of (preventable) patients in our healthcare systems, while improving quality of life. 
 
This is the simplest and most elegant solution to our current health and healthcare challenges – but it also means that existing approaches to healthcare and business models will be disrupted. ​​

A vehicle like Heartbeat Ventures - completely independent, entrepreneurial, and agile enough to boldly scale solutions with innovative business models is required to make this happen.
 
Our team consists of people dedicated to this purpose, bringing a strong track-record in business model innovation and operations management, as well as subject matter expertise in specific health domains.  We believe in working with integrity, respect, wholeheartedness, and flexible perseverance to get the job done – our core values.
 
We join forces with daring leaders that share our purpose and values, including entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, researchers, public health professionals, and impact investors. 

 
Together, we scale solutions for a healthier world.
