Anil Sethi

Anil founded 7 health-tech companies over 30 years. Has known abject failure, lead an IPO plus numerous M&A deals. Dakota exited at $40M, Sequoia IPO'd in the Spring bloodbath of 2000, then was acquired for $184M. Apple acquired Gliimpse for its Personal Health Record business where Anil was a Director of Consumer-Health Strategy and Engineering which lead in part to Apple’s push into Health Records. Devastatingly, his baby sister Tania died of hepatic complications from Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. To keep a deathbed promise to Tania, Anil founded Ciitizen to help kill this lifetime.

a16z, Verily and Section32 invested in Sethi's most recent consumer health venture, Ciitizen, a platform that helps patients turn paper records into computable data, which are then matched to clinical trials, and more. He is a co-founder/investor in Acoustiic, a nextgen MRI & HIFU device for the ablation of brain plaque and tumour tissue using nonlethal sound for bloodless surgery (an "acoustic laser").
