VentureOhio’s Entrepreneur of the Year has spent the past decade growing Assurex Health from a much-needed technology spun out of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Mayo Clinic to a company with over 480 employees serving almost 400,000 people with mental health conditions. In just eight years, he successfully led the company to an exit worth up to $410 million.

He’s a tireless leader with a proven ability to create jobs and raise and return capital, but if you ask him about the true success of Assurex Health, he will tell you – it’s the patients they serve that matter.

He’s a philanthropist, community leader, and great friend to VentureOhio and Ohio entrepreneurs. Congratulations to the inaugural Entrepreneur of the Year, Don Wright.
