Sean has been so much more than an investor —  he is always my first call. Sean's understanding of the complexities of healthcare has enabled him to give me advice and understand my business in a way investors less experienced in healthcare just can't match. I can't imagine a better health investor for the early stages.

From Day 1 Sean jumped in to help with recruiting, sourcing deals, and just being a source of positivity and encouragement. We had a lot of different offers during our fundraise, and when I got the chance to talk to Sean and his founder references, it became a no-brainer — everyone said “hands down go with Sean.” And, 10/10 I would do it again — I would highly recommend Sean!

Sean creates shareholder value far beyond capital. At Atlas he's been a rock, always available to offer support and talk through key decisions. The relationship feels more like a co-founder than a VC.

Many of our founders do not have a traditional healthcare background.

We are 0 → 1 health builders & partners.

We offer patient capital.

No conversation & no idea is too early. 

We hustle as hard as our founders.

We have zero interest to incrementally improve on the existing broken healthcare system.
