A Message from our Co-Founder: VantEdge One Group is now Vantedge Ventures
We wanted to take this opportunity to share some exciting news - VantEdge One Group is now Vantedge Ventures, a premier healthcare innovation and investment organization!
We started VantEdge One Group in 2015 with a mission to improve the U.S. healthcare delivery system by sourcing and commercializing early-stage innovations generating ROI for health systems. In recent years health systems have embraced new-to-market innovations and, as a result, we have expanded our services to include two comprehensive programs designed to advance healthcare startups through early-stage life cycles. As we close out 2018, we are continuing to broaden our position in the healthcare innovation community by adding “investor” to our offering. This growth has been the catalyst to evolve our brand identity to better reflect the expanded scope and our continued mission.
The name "Vantedge Ventures" is the product of our experience and commitment to ensuring healthcare innovations are cultivated with the appropriate resources and funding for successful adoption and scale. It is a reflection of who we are at our core and representative of the direction our organization is headed.
“Vantedge” - can be defined as the alternative or strategic advantages we offer to our health system and innovation clients. It remains part of the foundation in our new name representing the unique vantage points and creativity our team uses to define new market spaces and growth strategies for innovations, entrepreneurs, and healthcare delivery organizations.
"Ventures" - has two meanings: 1) our core abilities to de-risk and expedite new healthcare ventures into the commercial markets and 2) the creation of an early-stage venture fund investing in de-risked digital health and health IT platforms generating ROI for health systems.
This name change is effective July 2018. Our clients can be assured that this will not impact their engagement, agreements, or service levels in any way. Over the next six months, you will see our new brand develop across web, social media, and events platforms. We are excited to share this journey with you and encourage you to visit our new website, as it will be updated regularly throughout the year.
In summary, we are overjoyed to share the news of our rebranded identity and expanded platform. We are able to take this next step thanks to the hard work of our team and the support of valued clients, partners, and colleagues.
It is important to know that while growth and change reside within our core values, what has not changed is our commitment to improving healthcare with meaningful innovations.
