Every entrepreneur dreams about the big exit. With every Ohio acquisition, that dream seems more and more within reach for local entrepreneurs. Here’s your chance to hear first-hand about 2016’s big Ohio exit – Assurex.
Don Wright served as Co-Founder, Executive Vice President, and CEO of Assurex Health, a personalized medicine company helping clinicians determine the best medications for individual patients with various medical conditions. Playing an essential role in the growth of Assurex Health, Don helped the company take technology invented at the Mayo Clinic and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and was able to employ nearly 500 people and serve over 500,000 people with mental health conditions. In August of 2016, after nearly a decade working with the company, Assurex Health was acquired by Myriad Genetics for up to $410 million.
