The Journey to Ten Figures
As the driving force behind Bayless Integrated Healthcare, Justin Bayless championed an integrated approach to primary and behavioral health, ensuring no community was left behind. Under his leadership, Bayless not only became a URAC accredited telehealth provider but also featured on the Inc. 5000 list for three consecutive years. Now, with his venture, Ten Figures, Justin is on a mission to redefine the venture capital landscape for BIPOC and women healthcare entrepreneurs. Join us for a reflection of an Arizona natives entrepreneurial journey to exiting his mental health company with a nine figure valuation and how he plans to change the venture capital ecosystem. This engaging fireside chat will be moderated by Mark Moeremans, Managing Director, The Journey Venture Studio.
