Grant Verstandig

Grant has come a long way in the worlds of social networking, online gaming, and health care in a very brief time after leaving Brown University early. His company, Audax Health, has quickly put together an incredible team, signed some major deals, and raised $16.5 million from the likes of John Sculley. Their initial roll-out has been to use community and gamification features for health motivation–but they think similar tools can work in the world of clinical care for the acutely and chronically ill. And there are one or two precedents of Ivy League drop outs doing rather well in the technology world.
