Amy Rees Anderson started her first healthcare technology company at age 23 and credits entrepreneurship as the path that allowed her to be self-reliant during her years as a single mother of two young children. Rees Anderson went on to become founder and CEO of MediConnect Global, Inc., one of the largest cloud-based health information exchanges. In March 2012, Amy successfully led MediConnect to being acquired by Verisk Analytics (VRSK) for over $377 million.
After selling her company, Rees Anderson founded and continues to run REES Capital, an angel investment firm, as well as the IPOP Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to encouraging entrepreneurship as a pathway to self-reliance.
