About Jacques

Hi my name is Jacques Stroud and I am the founder of Docfully. I live in San Diego as a CNA and take care of a young man by the name of Jorge. He is a patient of mine with Cerebral Palsy and mental retardation. It's incredibly frustrating to get him to the doctor's office for a 5-10 min examination using public transportation. The whole ordeal takes about 2-2.5 hours. I was searching for an easier way to have these examinations that wouldn't be expensive because he survives off his disability check. Their wasn't an affordable solution that I could find so I wanted to create one. What excites me is that I have the opportunity to change the healthcare system that exists in the US today. To do this I needed to create a company. And that's how Docfully was created. I feel the next step in the evolution of my company is to build an amazing team and enter an accelerator. I went trough the "Founder's Institute" to help develop the idea. Now I want to go through "TechStars" to help develop the company for growth. And that they are partnering with Cedar-Sinai hospital is a great source for mentoring and building partnerships to grow the company.
