Nina Nashif founded Healthbox, a medical startup accelerator, in 2011.

“As (our startups) grow and once they are generating revenue, they need a different kind of help,” Nashif told the Tribune. “We’re thinking about what these companies need at different stages of the life cycle.”

Prior to Healthbox, Nashif served on the executive leadership team of Sg2, a healthcare analytics and consulting firm. She also co-founded a Turkish cotton textile business with operations in Istanbul and New York City.

Nashif graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a bachelor of science in community health. She also received her master’s of health administration from Washington University in St. Louis. The World Economic Forum designated Nashif a Young Global Leader, and she is also a member of the Harvard Kennedy School Women’s Leadership Board.
