Niko Skievaski – Co-founder and President at Redox
Our solution came through working with the market, by
talking to people who were experiencing this problem first hand.
Niko Skievaski is the co-founder and president at Redox. He was voted in the Forbes 30 Under 30 in Healthcare in 2017. He hosts the Redox podcast. He is a member of the Forbes Technology Council and a purported mediocre multidisciplinary cyclist. While studying economics at Boston University in 2010, Niko became enamored with the question: Why does the healthcare industry use clipboards, pagers, and fax machines in this age of technology? This led him on a journey of digging into the inefficiency in healthcare data, attempting to make sense out of a lot of nonsense in healthcare technology. In true entrepreneur fashion he experimented his way into his current business, running an incubator and even writing a satirical book on ICD 9/10 codes. In 2014, Niko launched Redox. Redox is the platform for connecting healthcare products to provider electronic health records. In 2021, Redox raised $90 million led by Adams Street Partners. Redox currently has 350 digital health company customers connected to more than 1,400 healthcare delivery organizations.
Dr. Ellen Snee – Author of Lead: How Women in Charge Claim Their Authority
There is a fundamental distinction between leadership, which
I think women are fabulous at, and authority, which sometimes
Dr. Ellen Snee has worked at the forefront of women’s leadership development for more than 25 years. But for the first 18 of those years, the front line of leadership wasn’t an Ivy League MBA program or a high-end consulting firm: It was an international order of Catholic nuns. During her time in the order, Ellen was surrounded by smart, educated, committed, and fun women who held roles of authority that were uncommon for women in the 1970s. She gained a number of essential — and, happily, transferable — skills: How to discern a call or deep desire, how to work collaboratively with other women, and how to be a savvy operator within male hierarchies. This experience laid the foundation for Ellen’s guiding passion: to become an expert in women’s leadership development and to change the world one woman at a time. She turned the conceptual frameworks from her dissertation on women in roles of authority into the launch of a successful consulting firm, Fine Line Consulting. Before long, she arrived in the corporate sector running leadership and coaching programs for executive women in Fortune 500 companies such as Pfizer, Cisco, Schwab, Marriott, Goodyear and many others. For 15 years she provided one-to-one coaching to high potential and executive level women across the country. A move to California in 2001 led to work in Silicon Valley at the major tech companies such as Apple, Cisco, KPG, and Citrix. In 2009 Ellen joined global technology company VMware as VP Leadership Development and Organizational Consulting. She went on to lead Global Talent Development and in 2013 launched VMwomen, a groundbreaking business initiative designed to attract, retain, develop, and advance talented women. Ellen is the author of Lead: How Women in Charge Claim Their Authority (She Writes Press), in which she shares her wisdom and experience with all talented women seeking to accelerate their careers. Lead differs from other management and leadership books in several important ways. The locus of authority throughout is women’s experience within three vital perspectives: personal, relational, and systemic. Ellen’s Self-Others-Systems model recognizes that women are always in simultaneous relationships with themselves, others, and the systems in which they live and work. All of these relationships overlap and interact dynamically when women exercise their leadership in roles of authority.
