A company builds two things: its products and its culture. We are on a mission to build products that change the way people think about and act on their health care, and a culture that will empower the people who are part of it to achieve greatness.
We believe that by doing this, Ayogo will create value for society, for the individuals who come into contact with the company, and for shareholders who created it. While it may be obvious, it’s worth saying aloud: there’s nobody but us to take responsibility, individually and collectively, for making it happen.
“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.”
– Antoine de Saint-Exupery
As the quote above from de Saint-Exupery puts quite poetically, the organization we’re building is not just a collection of jobs, roles, and processes to be bought and sold. Our company has a mission, in three parts:
Have a substantial, positive impact on the world by improving the physical and financial health of patients and health care systems.
Create value and a financial return on investment for our shareholders (many of whom are also employees).
Attract and recruit crazy talented, fundamentally empathic, and deeply passionate people that believe in the mission, put those people in a position to do their best work, and as an organization becomes increasingly good at amplifying that work, making the whole greater than the sum.
