About Us

Our Story

We’re a group of creative healthcare leaders with more than 100 years of experience in B2B strategy, growth, marketing, operations, innovation, and investment. We’ve practiced in the provider, health plan, community health, and technology sectors. Throughout our experiences, we came to believe that healthcare in America must transition to a market-based industry to survive. We also encountered many promising businesses designed to thrive in this “smart health market” that weren’t succeeding.

We created Canton & Company to make sure they would.
