Ben is working on a new, tech-enabled service business at Oxeon Ventures. He is particularly interested in delivery system innovations, unlocked through coordination and specialization, that break historical trade-offs between quality and cost. Ben’s first effort at Oxeon Ventures was focused on the creation of Strive Health.
Above any abstract interest, Ben loves healthcare because it is fundamentally about people serving one another in life’s most profound, meaningful moments. Our deepest fears can fall away in a moment of genuine connection and understanding between patient and caregiver. This is healthcare’s first principle and must be central to any consideration of how the industry can be improved.
Prior to joining Oxeon and concurrent with grad school, Ben was an Entrepreneur in Residence at Atomic Labs, a San Francisco investment firm, where he co-founded Hims, a consumer-facing telemedicine business. Prior to that, Ben was a Vice President at Accretive, LLC, a private investment firm focused on creating new companies, where he focused on the firm’s healthcare investments. He started his career with The Boston Consulting Group.
Ben graduated, summa cum laude, from The University of Oklahoma where he studied finance and biology. He also received an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School.
Ben didn’t really get to travel as a child, but he caught the bug after college and began a series of extended, solo backpacking trips around the world. He loves listening to travel stories and learning about new places to explore.
