DR. KINGSLEY R. CHIN

Founder | Managing partner | CEO

  • Born in Jamaica. Titchfield High School.

  • Board Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon.

  • Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, Harvard Medical School (honors).

  • Former University of Pennsylvania Chief Orthopedic Spine Surgeon.

  • Business experience at AT&T Bell Labs and Arthur Andersen (Accenture) Management Consulting (Goldman Sachs and Cigna Insurance).

As a doctorpreneur, he brings over 30 years of executive leadership experience overlapping at the intersection of healthcare investments, entrepreneurship, information systems, business operations and academics.

Dr. Chin is an inspiring example of a successful leader with a high Adversity Quotient (AQ), overcoming extreme poverty in Jamaica to immigrate to the US paying his way to graduate from the best Ivy-league schools.  While a busy orthopedic resident at Harvard Medical School, he put a team together to convert rent-controlled properties into condominiums which made him a multi-millionaire real estate developer with over $5M in properties in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It’s individual accomplishments like these that have become a recurrent theme for him and impacted his belief that good companies become great when they have a winning quarterback. He therefore invests in continuous personal leadership development and finds ways to be uniquely competitive like being the only CEO who:

  • Works directly with the medical devices in surgery being he is a surgeon

  • Works directly with surgeon colleagues and engineers to develop and improve the devices

  • Works directly with all healthcare stakeholders and patients to understand the market at every level

This hands on and unique 360-degree experience is a game-changing advantage in healthcare for making investment decisions, measuring the results and having the ability to nimbly make adjustments.
