Surgo Health

  • Company size: 25-50
  • Year Founded: 2022
  • Funding: Pre-Seed, $5M

What is their mission? Surgo Health aims to revolutionize the effectiveness of healthcare by decoding people’s behavior at the individual level. A life-saving drug or treatment is of no use if people don’t take it. Surgo Health believes that a complete understanding of what drives people’s behavior – and how their context impacts them – is critical to ensure every person lives a healthy life. However, up until now, this information hasn’t been readily available at scale. Surgo Health is changing that. The company’s proprietary data and AI-novel technology platform creates the most comprehensive socio-behavioral profile of every person in every place, with products and solutions that can help its customers improve outcomes, reduce costs, and address inequities.

Hear from CEO and Co-Founder, Sema Sgaier:

How does Surgo Health prioritize diversity in the workplace? Surgo Health’s founding team is composed of an impressive set of individuals who have gained traction building companies and driving key change in the healthcare sector, and who are experts and thought leaders in behavioral science, data science, and healthcare. They are a women-led, women-founded company that’s laser-focused on supporting women and people of color in tech and science, in addition to keeping diversity at the center of their culture as they continue to build their team.

Why do technical employees love working at Surgo Health?

“The fact that we are a young/flexible company combined with everyone being collaborative and open to feedback means I’ve always felt that we as individuals get a lot of freedom in charting our path through the projects… It’s reassuring to feel that even if my interests change every three months, chances are there’s a way to mold my role to explore them at Surgo.” – Senior Research Scientist at Surgo Health

Garner Health

  • Work Policy: Fully Remote (In-Office available for employees in NYC)
  • Company size: 125-150
  • Year Founded: 2019
  • Funding: $70M, Series B
  • Tech Stack: React, Node, TypeScript, PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, AWS, Terraform, Kubernetes

What problem are they solving? Low-quality healthcare financially impacts all Americans, especially those in the middle class, a section of the population that hasn’t experienced a wage increase in roughly 30 years. What they’ve gotten is increasingly expensive healthcare benefits, which haven’t created better health outcomes. Even now, the average American family doesn’t have enough cash on hand to pay for their deductible bill, so they’re functionally uninsured. By covering patients’ out-of-pocket costs when engaging with their tool, Garner Health aims to confront this issue directly, establishing a more equitable, beneficial system.

“We have really changed the economics of healthcare by giving employees richer benefits if they engage with Garner Health and use our tools. Changing those financial flows is really key to changing the system.” – Nick Reber, Founder & CEO
