This week’s founders are Philip Williams (MD’20), Naveen Jain (MD/PhD’24), and Jun Jeon (MD’20) of Spectrum Scores . Spectrum Scores is a website and pending mobile application that connects LGBTQ+ patients with LGBTQ+ knowledge-friendly, competent health care providers. The website allows users to score healthcare providers and professionals with LGBTQ+ metrics, developed with with help from the University of Pennsylvania, and leave subjective reviews of their patient-doctor interactions. ¬†Spectrum Scores aims to find existing healthcare providers that can fill the needs of the LGBTQ+ community and is currently operational in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, New York City, and Chicago.

Philip and Jun credits the HealthX Labs , a student accelerator of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, with providing the right advisors and initial seed funding for their product. Philip comments that “a big part of the help that Penn has been able to provide is healthcare advisory, [especially] since Penn is a leader in LGBTQ+ health”. In the coming months, Spectrum Scores is focusing on mobile applications in order to leverage the mobile market and increase their target audience.

Founder of the Week: Ronald Angsiy

Here at Weiss Tech House, we celebrate, support, and create innovators and thinkers all across Penn’s campus. In the spirit of our mission to advance technological entrepreneurship, we’ve started our new series:¬† Founder of the Week. Each week, look forward to new highlights, interviews, updates, and insights from Penn founders. If there’s anybody you’d like to nominate as a Founder of the Week, preferably Weiss Tech House members or alum, let us know here.

This week’s founder is Ronald Angsiy, co-founder of InnaMed, Inc. and Managing Director of Mikhail Capital. InnaMed is a portable blood testing device that can be used at home and is tailored to the individual user to lessen the need of returning doctor’s visits and to increase transparency in data. Ronald met his co-founder at a Weiss Tech House event, and has since then been funded and supported by multiple resources across Penn’s campus. InnaMed won the Y-Combinator Class of Winter 2017 and is a NASA iTech National Award Winner.

Ronald attributes some of his success to several mentors, including the founder of Weiss Labs, Guthrie Gintzler, and his boss at the IBM Think Tank he worked at. “You really need people to believe in you,” Ronald says, and he believes he wouldn’t be where he is today without the support he gained from the community here on-campus.
