Young companies help fuel the ecosystem’s growth
Eight percent of this year’s top 100 companies were founded in 2012 or later. Top 100 startups founded within the past five years employ a total of 2,501 people in Chicago. Moreover, a quarter of the companies on the list were founded in the past decade.
Livongo Health is taking a bold step to change how we manage chronic conditions, starting with diabetes. We’re helping people better understand their bodies by providing an interactive program that translates data into real-time, actionable information, leading to smart and informed health decisions. We’re starting with diabetes because of its scale, and cost. Nearly 10% of the US population has diabetes; the CDC projects this to grow to 30% by 2050 if current trends continue. Our approach will significantly improve health and potentially lower the cost of care by $100 billion.
