FROM OUR FRIENDS AT SAVVY COOPERATIVE!
We have really exciting news, hot off the press today!
Entrepreneur magazine has just named Savvy founder, Jen Horonjeff, one of the Most Daring Entrepreneurs of 2018!
The list includes other notable CEOs, founders and creators – from Elon Musk and Arlan Hamilton, to Chance the Rapper and Reese Witherspoon. The recognition is part of Entrepreneur’s annual issue profiling entrepreneurs who have taken bold action, dared to go big in the past year and who have also inspired others to dare even bigger.
Our bold move: looking beyond loyal customers, and letting them become shareholders of the co-op.
Savvy’s model of patient-ownership is considered innovative, but to us as longtime patients, it just made sense. People will be more engaged if they have a say in designing the systems and products they use, and share in their rewards. At Savvy, this isn’t a customer loyalty program, it’s ownership.
We are taking a centuries old business model, the co-op, and applying it to the modern day digital economy. We are proud to be the first patient-owned co-op and public benefit corporation.
Congratulations to all of our co-op members, this is a shared honor with you all! And if you are not yet a member and want to get on this rocket ship as we blow through the atmosphere, please join the co-op!Share around the link to the article, this is big news for our co-op!
