Action-based Visionary

Headshot_Chris Sanders TED_300px.jpg

I’m deeply passionate about human health and using mobile and sensor technologies to unearth the “secrets” buried in the 2 TB of data our body generates every day. I believe that creating an “under the hood”, multimodal dashboard for our bodies is key in driving us to action in making informed decisions about our health. I live much of my life at the “intersections” with orthogonal thinkers and doers who move me from my comfort zone and allow me to see the world from new perspectives while pushing the limits for what I can achieve.



I’m a hustler who brings together over a decade of experience in the life sciences along with an entrepreneurial mindset and willingness to roll-up my sleeves. I have collaborated on many cross-functional teams leading complex strategy and operations projects ranging from global clinical trial execution and vendor resourcing strategy to the formation and structuring of creative partnerships. I have worked on three health-related startups and serve as an advisor to others through HealthXL and MIT REDx. 


The various teams I’ve worked with have all given me a unique perspective on an industry that has been slow to evolve and an appreciation for the new business models, value-focused solutions, and creative partnering strategies that are critical to moving high-impact solutions forward. 


Entrepreneurial Thought & Action

Entrepreneurship is at the core of everything I do regardless of whether I’m working with a large multi-national or small start-up. As the co-founder and leader of a small army at The 431 Project and The Boston Young Healthcare Professionals, I have learned a lot about well-timed action, rapid prototyping, and smart failure, all of which are critical for identifying and moving transformative opportunities forwarded. I have also enabled this mindset in others. A great example is when I coached 100+ local entrepreneurs in Nashik, India this last year enabling them to effectively structure and pitch their businesses to corporate investors.



Proud to have worked with the Humon Team on the testing and launch of their Hex Wearable that provides real-time SmO2 and performance insights for elite endurance athletes. 

Triathlon is the fuel that drives me. It's the hardest sport I’ve ever taken on and is also where I live a lot of my adventure. It’s the challenge that keeps me coming back again and again determined more than ever to push myself to the limits of what I'm capable of. Physically, the body is a machine. You can make it do things it doesn’t want to do if you truly believe it can. The mind controls the body and the mind is limitless.
