Named coolest Entrepreneur under40 by Business Insider, Vivek Garipalli is the co-founder of the silicon valley unicorn Cover health.
Cover health might sound like the name of a herbal nutrients company but it is a next generation data-driven insurance startup. What sets Clover apart from other insurance companies is its use of software on every level of care.
It builds a team that maintains users’ profiles and can dispatch nurses on home visits, after a surgery for example, to make sure patients are following through on their instructions and feeling better.
In 2008, Vivek founded CarePoint Health, a fully integrated healthcare system in New Jersey. Through his role at CarePoint—whose mission is to serve uninsured and underinsured patient populations—Vivek experienced the misalignment of providers and insurance companies first-hand.
Prior to CarePoint, Vivek owned and operated various outpatient facilities. He began his career in finance, holding roles at Credit Suisse First Boston, J.P. Morgan Partners, and Blackstone Group.
