It’s no secret that the U.S. healthcare system is a source of endless aggravation, with many unable to afford the high cost of medical prescriptions. For the next episode of our Leadership Lessons series, host Jason Nazar talks with Doug Hirsch, co-founder & co-CEO of GoodRx (NASDAQ: GDRX) – a platform that helps Americans get the prescriptions they need at a price they can afford. Since 2011, consumers have saved $40 billion to date and 20 million people visit GoodRx every month to learn about and save on their healthcare.

Hirsch knows a thing or two about building products that matter. He’s had an extraordinary journey before co-founding GoodRx and taking it public at the height of the pandemic in 2020. He was one of the first 30 employees at Yahoo! and as ‘s VP of Product he co-created Facebook photo tagging and helped open the platform beyond college students.

  • The common trait among all entrepreneurs

  • What to look for as an investor

  • The key to raising capital

  • The importance of having a mission-driven company

  • The thread that drives entrepreneurship
