Overcoming Adversity

Things don’t always go perfectly, but our resolve to overcome challenges makes us better people and a better company. We aren’t defined by our mistakes, rather, we’re defined by what we make of them.

Innovation

We take the road less traveled because we know it will lead to a better way forward. Contakt World will always seek more and better ways to build on non-conventional solutions and ground-up innovations, with a guidepost of health equity.

Connections icon

Health Equity

Wherever the risk is highest, we’ll be there. If digital divides and language barriers could keep us from serving critical communities,we wouldn’t be doing our job. Contakt World values health equity and applies a lens of health equity to business.

Diversity icon

Diversity

Our team and portfolio is deliberately diverse because of our leadership team’s core beliefs. To serve people and health, we must understand, respect, and empathize with everyone regardless of, and even because of, their culture, race, religion, creed, or circumstance.

Care icon

Balancing Purpose With Profit

If the most profitable decision isn’t the right decision, then it’s back to the drawing board—every time. We believe business can be a force for good and won’t make decisions purely for the sake of making money.

Meet the best, most curious minds in the business.

Our team includes healthcare professionals, finance experts, policymakers, brand and design experts, innovation hackers and publishing experts.
