As a son of immigrants who came to the United States with nothing more than a few suitcases, I am a living example that the American dream is alive and well.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 18, 2020
Washington Business Journal announced Anish Sebastian, CEO and co-founder of Babyscripts, a digital health company delivering virtual care solutions for pregnancy, as a 2020 Minority Business Leader Award honoree. The Minority Business Leader Awards program is an annual event hosted by the Washington Business Journal that recognizes the top minority business owners and leaders in the D.C. community. The event honors the entrepreneurial drive, creativity and success of each of its honorees. Each of the 24 honorees was selected for their outstanding dedication to ethics, giving, and leadership.
"It is an incredible honor to be recognized by the Washington Business Journal and their Minority Business Leaders awards program" said Anish Sebastian, CEO and co-founder of Babyscripts. "As a son of immigrants who came to the United States with nothing more than a few suitcases, I am a living example that the American dream is alive and well. Improving the status quo of pregnancy care means making that dream a reality for mothers and babies all over the U.S. This recognition is a vote of confidence, not just for me as an individual, but for this vision of improving maternal health."
Anish co-founded Babyscripts in 2014 with the belief that internet-enabled medical devices and big data would transform the delivery of pregnancy care. Since the inception of the company, Anish has received numerous accolades including being named a “Champion of Change” for precision medicine by the White House, one of the Top 40 Transformers in Healthcare by MM&M Magazine, and Healthcare Transformer by the Startup Health Academy in New York. Anish is the architect of the first "Prenatal Care Moonshot,” focused on eliminating maternal mortality by 2030 through mobile/digital technology and Babyscripts. He is an established thought leader in the digital health tech space, and frequently speaks and writes on the future of healthcare.
Anish joins this year's outstanding honorees and more than 275 alumni in the region, each an example of standout work in his or her field. Honorees were selected from reader nominations by a panel of judges led by Minority Business Leader Award alumni and Washington Business Journal staff. A special glossy magazine will publish in the Washington Business Journal on March 27 featuring profiles and portraits of each of these outstanding leaders.
The 2019 Minority Business Leader Awards are set for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. March 26 at MGM National Harbor.
Past honorees for the Minority Business Leader Awards include Leslie Hale of RLJ Lodging, Lonnie Bunch of Smithsonian Institution, Timothy Chi of WeddingWire, Sheila Johnson of Salamander Hotels and more.
