Kicking off this Inspiring Women collaboration highlighting several of the extraordinary women leaders in the 7Wire Ventures family.
As a seasoned healthcare executive, entrepreneur, and previous government servant, Lori is familiar with the need to address healthcare problems at scale. Given the tsunami of need, Lori created Caraway to redefine healthcare for an entire generation, the GenZ population. Caraway is focused on healthcare delivery of this population with an approach that makes sense for this first generation of digital natives. Bringing together a virtual approach of on-demand care where “no question is too small”, Caraway is bringing evidenced based solutions to this population.
Hear Lori talk about:
- Why Gen Z? Not just the first fully digital population, but also the one that is the largest, most diverse, as well as socially minded group. In 2030, GenZ will make up 30% of our workforce.
- Reproductive rights and now uncertainty. This is also the population that has fewer reproductive rights than their mothers. When discussing the devastating Dobbs decision, Lori is quick to point out the impact to individuals in all
- A tsunami of need. A generation that should be at its healthiest and happiest simply is not. Mental health issues have become front and center as GenZ lives have been radically disrupted due to the pandemic.
- The importance of being bold: Addressing large scale issues and populations requires bold actions and a very aspirational vision. Lori suggests to all women entrepreneurs to not forget that reality.
