We at Bio + Health pride ourselves in constantly innovating.
Since its first episode on September 22, 2020, our podcast, Bio Eats World, has been exploring technological innovations to understand how biology is fundamentally transforming our future. Earning a spot in the top 1% of all podcasts globally, Bio Eats World offers our audience an exclusive window into the broad networks and expert insights of a16z Bio+Health. Today, we refocus these efforts and expand on them to give you Raising Health.
That’s right, Bio Eats World is now Raising Health.
While Bio Eats World had a focus on (bio)technological advancements, Raising Health zooms out, focusing not only on the tech, but also the people building it.
Raising Health is about the founders, the dreamers, the doers, the builders—those who dare to discover a healthier future for us all. Each episode is a tapestry of personal journeys and professional insights, blending tactical advice with heartfelt stories. It’s a window into the lives and thoughts of those who are building companies and shaping the future of human health.
We are at a pivotal moment in history. This is a time marked by astonishing advancements—from the approval of new gene editing treatments to artificial intelligence revolutionizing every aspect of our lives, including healthcare. We’re witnessing the dawn of an era with unprecedented understanding of and ability to transform bio and health. In such a critical period, it’s time to broaden our lens and double down on how humanity can benefit from technology.
Raising Health is a show for and about the builders who are leading the companies behind the innovations. Whether you’re laying your first brick, or at the helm of an empire, you can expect raw insights and actionable advice.
