Elizabeth Holmes

Founder & CEO, Theranos

Elizabeth founded Theranos in 2003 with the mission to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters, enabling early detection and intervention of disease, and empowering individuals with information to live the lives they want to live.

Elizabeth left Stanford University's School of Engineering to build Theranos around her patents and belief that access to health information is a basic human right. For the last decade, she has led the company from concept to reality, enabling a new paradigm of individualized care. Theranos’ breakthrough advancements have made it possible to quickly process the full range of laboratory tests from a few drops of blood - instead of numerous tubes - and at unprecedented low costs, and are now directly accessible to people and their physicians through Theranos Wellness Centers opening nationwide.
