Vic Gatto

Founder & CEO, Jumpstart Foundry

Vic has been an investor in healthcare and technology since joining the traditional venture capital firm Massey Burch in 2001.  He has made over 140 investments in early-stage innovation companies in the areas of healthcare services, medical devices, diagnostic tools, technology, and data analytics.  

Vic was the seed investor in Change Healthcare.  He helped growth the company from a concept to the multi-billion enterprise it is today.  Vic served on the Board of Directors for seven years.  He also joined Change in a full-time capacity as President during a critical transition period.  As President, Vic helped the original Founders define the skills needed to lead the company forward.  He then recruited a two-person team of Chairman and CEO to leave a large publicly-traded healthcare company to lead the growth of Change Healthcare.

Vic co-founded the Briovation in 2014.  Designed to be a new type of healthcare investment platform, Brio leverages the complimentary business units of Health:Further and Jumpstart to convey an unfair advantage to investors, innovators and industry.  

Before starting Brio, Vic served as a Partner at Solidus Company, focusing his investment activity primarily in healthcare services and technology.  In the 1990s, before switching to the investor side of the table, Vic co-founded and subsequently sold a software company.  

Vic lives in Nashville with his wife and two sons.  He has a graduate degree from Vanderbilt’s Owen School of Management and a BA from Amherst College.
