Welcome to Inc.’s Founders Project podcast with Alexa Von Tobel, where we tell you stories of the guts, inspiration and drive that characterize the entrepreneurs who build the future. Every week we dig into a founder’s professional script and discover what makes them tick. In this week’s episode:
Scaling Globally with Kate Ryder of Maven
When Kate Ryder founded Maven in 2014 to reinvent health care for women and families from the ground up, she was at the forefront. With virtual care at its core, she has grown Maven into the largest telehealth network for women’s and families’ health worldwide. Maven’s growth started with a “boots on the ground” marketing strategy and has been accelerated in recent years by Covid. Today, the company has a thriving B2B model that supports more than 10 million families in 175 countries.
Ryder shares how she created a new category in healthcare to fill in all the moments outside of the doctor’s office, and why her past career as a journalist made her a stronger founder: “What I love about entrepreneurship was this idea that you could do it.” story, but then you’d be making a product to solve the problem, instead of just writing about it. And that got me super excited.”
