This network includes prospective CEOs, problem advocates, validators, ninjas, Sprinters, sponsors, staff and other individuals and organizations connected to work 10.10.10 does as part of its 10.10.10 Cities: Health programs.
We first measure the experience of the participating prospective CEOs and others participating in the programs who have been given the challenge of addressing wicked problems in health. We next assess the number of new ventures created within each cohort that are addressing wicked problems in health. We then determine the extent to which these new ventures achieve both financial success (ROI) and success in tackling the wicked problem that was the inspiration for creating the new venture in the first place. (This last assessment can rarely be made earlier than 7-10 years after the new venture was originally created.)
To date, we have produced 5 programs – 4 of them focused on wicked problems in health. To each of these programs we have invited 10 successful serial entrepreneurs from around the United States, 10 problem advocates, up to 20 validators, 20-40 ninjas and sprinters and hundreds of public participants.
50 prospective CEOs have participated in these programs since the first of them was offered in February of 2015.
Through 10.10.10’s programs to date, at least 5 ventures have been created that have the potential to create substantial impact in human health: BurstIQ, Apostrophe Health, Concert Health, Recalibrate Solutions, and Microlyze Corporation. A number of others are still being formed.
