About Forward

Forward is a revolutionary preventive healthcare membership that puts you in control of your health, with world-class doctors supported by technology. Forward was founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber.

While at Google, Patrick had the privilege of working with Adrian for half a decade building businesses within Google on Larry’s special projects’ team. Our growth investment team saw in Adrian and in the incredible Forward team the potential to reach a billion users by building a full-stack technology platform to refactor the healthcare system while offering a delightful patient experience. Forward enables high-quality care to be delivered at scale and at unprecedentedly low costs and we’re only at the beginning of this ambitious journey.
