We need people-centered wellness solutions that integrate brain health factors” — Charlie Hartwell, Operating Partner at the Bridge Builders Collaborative

Ques­tion: Char­lie, please share 1–2 major brain health needs you observe right now whose solu­tion demands a cre­ative and sig­nif­i­cant tech-enabled inno­va­tion.

Answer: I’d encour­age peo­ple to remem­ber that Brain Health is just part of over­all Whole Per­son Health.  Brain health solu­tions may reduce some dis­ease symp­toms but not help achieve actu­al well­ness.  We need peo­ple-cen­tered well­ness solu­tions that inte­grate brain health fac­tors.

What advice would you give an entre­pre­neur launch­ing an inno­va­tion to address that?

Think hard about the way to grow and through what dis­tri­b­u­tion chan­nel you want to bring your solu­tion. No dis­tri­b­u­tion, no inno­va­tion.
