Company description

Wellville is a national nonprofit project to demonstrate the value of investing in health. We generate real-world evidence by supporting multi-sector teams in five U.S. communities over 10 years, and then share what we learn to inspire other communities and promote national change.

Founded by angel investor Esther Dyson and led by health-impact innovator Rick Brush, Wellville supports its communities the way a business accelerator helps startups. Each Wellville community receives a dedicated advisor to help them develop strong leadership teams and implement approaches that are responsive to changing conditions. Most important, we help Wellville communities demonstrate value to attract the kind of collaboration and investment needed to scale, spread and sustain impact over time.
