About Our Speakers:
Carrie Rich is the co-founder and CEO of The Global Good Fund. At age 26, Carrie felt privileged to have a mentor who invested in her leadership as a young professional. Together, they took this idea of pairing experienced business executives with emerging young social entrepreneurs to create a worldwide organization. Carrie also serves at the Managing Director of The Global Good Fund's sister company, the Global Impact Fund, a venture capital fund seeking market leading returns by backing social entrepreneurs who are people of color and women. Fundamentally, Carrie’s message is about accessibility, how everyday people can empower themselves and others. Carrie is the author of three books, including Health Entrepreneurship: A Practical Guide, and two editions of Sustainability for Healthcare Management: A Leadership Imperative, which became a top 5 business book in Handelsblatt (Germany). Carrie is the recipient of The Daily Record’s Most Admired CEO, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year award, and POLITICO Women Who Rule Award.
Achal Patel is the Co-Founder and CEO of Cabinet Health. He came from three generations of pharmaceutical manufacturing and healthcare professionals. Prior to Cabinet Achal worked in medical logistics and supply chain innovation. Being surrounded by the field his entire life and career, he and Co-Founder, Russell Gong, knew that society needed a smarter health experience -- one that focused on preparedness, honesty, and sustainability, which is how Cabinet Health was born.
