Ikigai Growth Partners

Connecting innovative, early stage healthcare firms to name-brand customers.

Who We Are

We are a collection of senior executives, in both Entrepreneurial and Corporate enterprises, who love healthcare and want to help accelerate the adoption of innovation.


Ikigai, pronounced (ee-key-guy) is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being.”

What We Do

We sort through the myriad of early stage firms. We find the best. We help them unlock their value through understanding what they have to offer that meets the needs of our name-brand customers. We take them to market (and sometimes help them raise funds, if needed).

We accelerate the growth of our clients and bring new value to healthcare.
