About Xeno

I have 10+ years of health experience in various spheres (public health, epidemiology, global health, pharma, government services)--and am looking to found a company that will be for health what Amazon has become for bookstores or Google has for libraries. Today's health-care system only looks after physical and mental sickness, not health. This leaves out the root causes that make someone healthy. The root causes are diet, exercise, mental health, sleep, socialness, genetics, and environmental factors (a small fraction of which is access to healthcare). What makes us healthy, on a holistic level, is a complex problem, and I'd like to build a company to tackle this problem, both from a population health perspective as well as for personalized medicine. I have thought of a really good use case to being this journey, happy to hear from anybody with software development background interested in talking more.

FYI--I have been on the "co-founder dating" mode for a while and have met a range of people. I don't want to waste your time, and I prefer you don't waste mine. If you have deep technical expertise doing full stack software development (I prefer someone who can build solid infrastructure to someone who understands the tips of AI and ML) and you are interested in what I have said here, please email me directly at xeno.acharya@gmail.com as I rarely check this portal.
