about this episode

It’s another awesome interview from the Rock Health CEO Summit, with Jason sitting down with Anne Wojcicki, CoFounder of 23andMe. 23andMe helps people access, understand, and benefit from the human genome by giving us our own DNA information, which in turn can be used to help prevent disease. They have been working on this for nearly 10 years by offering saliva-based genetics test kits for $99 directly to consumers. Jason and Anne discuss 23andMe’s business, customer success stories from sequencing DNA, how FDA regulation has impacted the company (and all healthcare startups), what the future of healthcare should look like, how big of an opportunity healthcare is for startups, security of healthcare data, and much more.
