Health Care for Startups under $100/mo
Strada Healthcare is a NE Startup providing unlimited direct primary care to those who need it most: individuals, families, and businesses for under $100/mo. They provide an alternative payment model to the traditional healthcare billing model. Instead of paying “fee for service” charges or battling with third party billing, you and your family or your business pay a flat membership fee and have access to high quality and affordable healthcare when everyone needs it most. Come join Dr. Joel Bessmer to hear his startup journey to opening his first 10 clinics and how he is disrupting the traditional healthcare model.

"I" is for Insanely Important
A great Visionary is only half the equation for a company's success. The Integrator moves ideas forward, creates focus and accountability, and is the glue that holds together people and processes. Hear from Bulu cofounder Paul Jarrett about the difference his Integrator, Hank Pfeiffer, is making as Bulu scales.
