How one founder identified a huge healthcare gap and acquired the skills necessary to address it – TechCrunch

Our new podcast, Found, is now available, and the first episode features guest Iman Abuzeid, co-founder and CEO of Incredible Health. Abuzeid’s story of the founding and building Incredible Health, a career platform for healthcare professionals focusing specifically on nurses, is about a focused entrepreneur building a unique skill set and acquiring the experience necessary to create a world-leading solution.

Abuzeid went to medical school and acquired her MD, but decided before residency to get an MBA from Wharton to pursue her dream of entrepreneurship, inspired by two generations of entrepreneurs in the family that preceded her. After eventually making her way to Silicon Valley and working in a couple of other startups in the healthcare space, Abuzeid took essential lessons away from those experiences about what not to do when running your own company and embarked on building her own with co-founder Rome Portlock, now the company’s CTO.

Incredible Health is tackling a huge challenge — the shortfall of availability of skilled nurses and the lack of mature, sophisticated career resources to help those nurses in their professional life. COVID-19 threw those issues into stark relief, and Incredible Health adjusted its game plan to adapt to its users’ needs. Abuzeid tells us all about how she made those calls and convinced venture investors to come along for the ride.
