Founder & CEO, Violet
Gaurang is the Founder & CEO of Violet - a platform dedicated to helping the healthcare industry connect underserved communities to culturally competent care, by building a new standard for identifying cultural competencies within providers. Violet's proprietary system for benchmarking cultural competence uses a variety of disparate data about each partner provider (e.g. training history, professional experiences, identities, etc.) to identify and showcase culturally competent providers. Prior to building Violet, Gaurang spent ~4 years building insurance and technical products at Oscar health, a health insurance startup build from the ground up. He is also queer and an immigrant, with a passion for making healthcare more inclusive for the medicaid population.
