Briovation (Brio for short) is an innovation catalyst

WE EXIST TO CATALYZE A REVOLUTION IN HEALTH THROUGH INNOVATION.

WE DO THIS THROUGH LAUNCHING AND SUPPORTING VENTURES THAT CHALLENGE THE SYSTEMIC FLAWS IN OUR HEALTH ECOSYSTEMS.

 
 

THE SCENARIO

Health, worldwide, has been addressed by a $10 trillion mega-industry of outdated infrastructure: health systems, insurance, public health, biotech, pharma, food, etc.  This infrastructure was created to address the health challenges facing the world 100 years ago: disease, trauma and organ failure.  Thankfully, scientific discovery, brilliant doctors and nurses and advanced technology have been able to largely solve these huge health challenges - that’s the good news.  The bad news is that the mega-industry has not evolved to address the challenges society faces today and for the next 100 years. These challenges include chronic disease, obesity and sustained behavior change.

Some of the best people in the world have dedicated their lives to the cause of health for all as practitioners, advocates and operators. However, greed has emerged to play a critical part in creating this sub-optimal, outdated, change resistant mega-industry. It’s time to address this, now. We owe it to our parents and our grandchildren to catalyze this change.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are optimistic and enthusiastic that innovation can solve the world’s biggest challenges and help people everywhere.  The glass is half full... and we know where they keep the pitcher.

We are open to novel and diverse ideas… this is where the fun & powerful stuff lies. Status quo is boring, and nothing is worse than being boring.

We empower and celebrate people - great people are the main ingredient of innovation. Brio exists to empower great people to successfully transform a creative idea into a market solution.

We are big on leveraging data - We believe in the scientific method.  When practicing innovation, it’s normal to be wrong (at first)... but collecting data to improve assumptions and quick product iterations forms the path toward success.

BRIO CORE BELIEFS

  • The existing health industries and infrastructure must change.

  • Exponential growth in technology, biology and communications enable dramatically better health solutions.

  • Traditional boundaries dividing sectors and professions are artificial and impede progress.  Collaboration and cross-pollination is needed

  • Innovation is the answer to better health at sustainable costs.
