What if you could discover what diseases you're genetically predisposed for? That's the problem Othman Laraki set out to solve at Color, with a tech-forward approach to genomics. Since launching in 2013, Color's aim has expanded to building public health infrastructure (making it no surprise that Color is one of San Francisco's biggest Covid-19 test providers). With degrees from Stanford and MIT and tech experience from Twitter and Google, Othman is bringing an outsider's view to healthtech. Othman shares why entrepreneurship requires a level of irrationality, why a minimalistic UI is critical in healthcare, and how he defines Color's customers.
