This week on JobMakers, Host Denzil Mohammed talks with Dr. Babak Movassaghi, founder of InfiniteMD (acquired last summer by ConsumerMedical), which connects patients with top U.S. medical professionals through second-opinion video consultations, guiding patients to better care. When the world shut down due to COVID-19, Dr. Movassaghi’s company was already prepared to serve patients via telehealth. In this episode, they discuss his fascinating pivot from physics and professional football in Germany, to healthcare and innovation here in the U.S., an extension of his ability to navigate multiple identities as an Iranian-German living the American Dream.
Dr. Babak Movassaghi holds a PhD in Biomedical Engineering, a Masters in theoretical Physics, and an MBA from MIT’s Sloan School, and was once captain of the German professional NFL football team. In 2016, he founded InfiniteMD, which was acquired last summer by ConsumerMedical, a leading clinical advocacy and decision-support company, where he currently serves as Chief Product & Innovation Officer. He previously served as VP of Innovation and New Ventures for Flex, a global leader in design, engineering. There are more than 40 patents and three books to his name.
