July 2013 — Present
I am the co-founder of ORGANIZE, a non-profit leveraging technology, open-data, and behavioral economics to increase the amount of organ donations in the US. ORGANIZE is working with state and federal government offices, and some of the world’s largest brands and tech companies, to rebuild the US organ donation system.
We recently launched the first ever portal that can drive registrations in 40 states as well as other policy based initiatives to facilitate innovation in the space - for example, we were awarded an Innovator in Residence position in the Department of Health and Human Services.
We’ve been fortunate to generate a lot of attention for our efforts which is helping us enlist others: We received a $1MM Prize from Verizon as the country’s top healthcare start-up. We were listed on INC Magazine's 35Under35, O Magazine tagged ORGANIZE as one of the top healthcare breakthroughs of 2014, and we were described as "the company to end the organ donation crisis" by FastCo.
