LDH provided seed and follow-on capital and invaluable guidance, helping us to attract global brands who trust in us to provide accurate air quality data."  Ran Korber, Breezometer – CEO & Co-Founder

"Having LDH on our board, closely mentoring and co-locating with us, has been instrumental to our quick growth, now with 80 strong team members. I've instituted standing monthly meetings with three peer CEO's for collaborating, discussing challenges, and considering opportunities. Truly an amazing experience of personal and professional growth."  Jason T. Andrew, Limelight Health – CEO & Co-Founder

"There is no better partner in digital health than Launchpad. Through the course of building a company, you encounter many unknowns and this is the best team to have in your corner bar none."  Michelle Longmire, MD – CEO & Co-Founder

"With digital health experience, LDH quickly recognized what we were trying to do, pushed us on our false assumptions, continually encouraged us, and provided the resources, network, and methodologies to build our business." Andrew Trees, Agathos – CEO & Co-Founder
