Experts in data privacy/security/sharing, clinical trials, quantified self/biohacker, and patient/caregiver living with a chronic condition.



  • Data privacy / security / sharing: Ideally someone who can weigh in on the average user’s perception of privacy/security considerations, appropriate communication, etc.


  • Clinical trials: Someone who’s been through at least a handful of clinical studies themselves and perhaps knows the “scene” such that they can contrast our partner’s design against the challenges/frictions of their past experiences
  • Quantified self / biohacker: Someone who’s used all of the apps, keeps their own spreadsheets and does their own analysis because the other tools fall short…that would love to be able to dump their data in our partner’s app and see what their AI finds, or use our partner’s app instead of spreadsheets and/or multiple apps.
  • Chronic condition sufferer / caregiver: Someone who either cares for a spouse/child/parent with a condition, or self-manages their own, and has been through the second- and third-opinion revolving door, bringing their own collated binder of health data in tote.

About Savvy Cooperative
Savvy Cooperative is the first and only patient-owned co-op that empowers people to use their health experiences to inform new products and services through surveys, interviews, product testing and more! It was founded by two patients who wanted to make sure people who shared their health experiences were fairly compensated. That’s why we are patient-owned and the majority of our profits go right back to our members!
