Former AOL and Time Warner CEOs Reunite for StartUp Health
The former CEOs of AOL (NYSE: AOL) and Time Warner (NYSE: TWX) have teamed up again. StartUp Health, a joint venture designed to work as a public-private partnership in consumer health web companies, was formally launched Thursday.
The company will partner with the Department of Health and Human Services and plans to provide entrepreneurs with the necessary information and support to turn health and wellness ideas into sustainable businesses. The goal is to build an ecosystem for “Health 2.0,” or what they hope will be a revolution in consumer health web companies.
Former Time Warner CEO Gerald M. Levin will serve as the first chairperson of StartUp Health, which will be similar to and work with Startup America, chaired by AOL's former CEO, Steve Case.
StartUp Health's first project is to be a series of roundtables designed to bring together entrepreneurs, investors and government agencies to create a roadmap for turning startups into successful Health 2.0 businesses.
