Adrian Aoun is Founder and CEO of Forward, a startup aiming to be the first healthcare system to deliver high-quality healthcare to a billion people for free. To achieve such a bold mission, Forward is disrupting healthcare at its core — rebuilding it not as a labor-based service but instead as a technology-based product. Rapidly covering the nation with over 25 locations, Forward is showing us what healthcare could be - using technology to prevent illness and keep us healthy while driving down cost. Before founding Forward, Aoun was the Head of Special Projects for Larry Page at Google/Alphabet, where he founded one of the Alphabet companies, Sidewalk Labs. Aoun arrived at Google following the acquisition of his AI startup, Wavii, and spent his first year at Google helping to create and build their AI division. Additionally, Aoun is an active angel investor and adviser to a number of technology startups and funds.
