Arvind Rajan left his managing director post at LinkedIn intent upon two things – taking some time off with his family and finding a new venture that would be hard, important, and transformative to the world. Rajan and his co-founders, James Chaukos and Vince Kim – saw an imbalance in how patients with late-stage kidney disease were being treated. Cricket Health – identified as one of the Fierce 15 Companies in healthcare – is working to balance the scales in favor of patients by building teams of nephrologists, dieticians, even experienced patient mentors to help people before they reach kidney failure.
