How & Why to Say Goodbye to Rockstar Employees (Recruit Rockstars 410)

I just interviewed one of the top Growth Capital investors around.

Todd Cozzens is Managing Partner of Transformation Capital, with 30+ years of experience in the digital health industry that includes founding, operating, building, investing in and exiting innovative companies. 

He has a rare history of creating value both as an operator & as an investor. As investor, he’s served on the Boards of leading companies PatientPop, LetsGetChecked, Sword Health, PatientPing, and Health Catalyst.

Previously, Todd co-led digital health investing at Sequoia Capital, where he helped build several breakthrough companies like AirStrip, MedExpress, ZirMed, SCIO Health Analytics, and Natera.

Prior to investing, Todd was a Founder & CEO of Marquette Medical (acquired by GE) and Picis (acquired by UnitedHealth Group)

Todd was a member of the US Sailing Team for three Olympiads, reaching a No. 2 worldwide ranking and winning several North American & European championships, two Bacardi Cups and a gold medal in the Pan American Games.

Safe to say, Todd knows a thing or two about why, how, and when it’s vital to make the difficult decisions around your team.

The questions then is: Will you?
