Metzler, the founder and CEO of OneRecovery, has broad investment and operating experience, having worked extensively with companies ranging in size from start-ups to over a billion dollars in revenue. As a venture capitalist at Mission Ventures, he actively analyzed potential investment prospects as well as helped his existing portfolio companies plan and achieve strategic business goals. Prior to joining Mission Ventures, he worked as an investment banker at CIBC World Markets in New York with both public and private companies in all facets of corporate finance. While at CIBC, he worked on over $626 million of mergers and acquisitions advisory assignments and over $2 billion of capital raising transactions.
The Health 2.0 community consists of hundreds of organizations and thousands of inventors. Well over 1,000 of those IT and health care professionals are expected to attend the Health 2.0 conference, during which dozens of health pioneers will demonstrate how they are using technology to advance the delivery of health care.
