Jo Bhakdi of Quantgene Recruiting 1000 Pioneers to Transform Healthcare wants ex-founders and startup veterans to bring their zero-to-one skills to a new healthcare innovation platform

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Jo Bhakdi, founder and CEO of Quantgene, is extending an invitation to former founders and startup veterans to apply for a new role through its newly launched 1000 Pioneers initiative. 1000 Pioneers and Pioneerland are working to build a layer of transformational businesses, starting with healthcare. The concept is unique: instead of hiring corporate executives, they build a team of pioneers who know what it means to engineer and build the future with speed and purpose.

"We live in a time of an unprecedented and exponential opportunity for universal progress - especially in healthcare," said Bhakdi. "New technologies allow us to increase the pace of innovation by 1,000x - but we need a new type of team member to win this race for the future. Former founders and startup veterans bring zero-to-one mindsets with them. While they may not fit into the typical corporate environment or functional structure, they do here. They need an organization designed for 1,000x growth - that organization is 1000 Pioneers. We offer purpose, disruption and hyper-growth without the friction of fundraising, technology R&D, operations, HR and finance."

Quantgene has created a uniquely powerful innovation platform at the heart of healthcare. It uses cloud and medical technology to transform medicine through three strategic areas of innovation: 1) Closing America's preventive care gaps; 2) Delivering the future of preventive precision medicine; and 3) Keeping America's workforce safe and productive.

By deploying its new innovation platform, Quantgene can deliver life-saving preventive medicine to everyone across a wide range of large markets faster, more cost-effectively and with higher quality than current alternatives. In 2022, Serenity, one of Quantgene's flagship products, was awarded "Functional Genomics Innovation of the Year'' at the BioTech Breakthrough Awards and became an official community partner of the American Cancer Society.

"1000 Pioneers is a novel approach giving founders the opportunity to deploy their experience and skills within a culture that rewards their creativity, initiative and unique thinking, all while being supported by Quantgene's existing infrastructure," said Jamey Edwards, Chief Platform Officer of StartUp Health, one of Quantgene's investors. "It allows them to run their own startup within an already scaling & financed company."
