Qualio as a Force for Good: Year 2 of Improving Healthcare Access for Vulnerable Populations
As 2021 comes to a close, our team at Qualio is counting their blessings and reflecting on lessons learned. From a new round of funding to power our mission to help even more life sciences companies launch and scale life-saving products, to 222% growth in our global, all-remote team, we are so thankful to all of our devoted clients, partners and team members.
Success in business is typically about growing – growing revenue, customer base, team, product, and more. While these measurements are important, focusing on only these success outcomes can feel hollow. Qualio’s definition of success also includes giving back and leaving things better than how we originally found them.
This past year—much like the year before—has put increasing pressure on professionals working in life sciences and healthcare. We hear the inspiring and sobering stories from those on the front lines of life sciences who are making a real difference to save lives.
To celebrate the strong tailwinds behind us and the people who helped pave this road to success – notably amid an ongoing pandemic – Qualio is donating for the 2nd year in a row 1% of annual revenue. We call this initiative 1% For All Life. Every year we will continue to support organizations that ensure underserved communities receive the healthcare they need.
At Qualio, we share a core belief that everyone deserves to live a long, happy and healthy life. We are continuing our work to extend this mission by supporting organizations that align with our shared values.
After nearly two years in a global pandemic, we feel strongly that we must continue to support better healthcare access to underserved communities. Here is where our donations will go as 2021 comes to an end:
- Saint Francis Foundation: Community Crisis Response Fund (COVID-19)
- Gates Philanthropy Partners: the Must-Solve Problems fund with the hope of supporting their efforts to drive healthcare innovation, eradicate disease, and reduce inequity in the world.
Learn more about why we’ve made this pledge and hear from Saint Francis Foundation’s President, Mark Ryle on their inspiring work in this episode of the From Lab to Launch podcast.
You can get involved too! We love seeing other companies making similar pledges like the global movement to Pledge 1%, a new normal for companies of all sizes and stages to have a positive social impact through their business.
As we prepare for downtime with family and friends over the coming weeks, it is a time for reflection. And as I and the team at Qualio also get ready to sign off for a brief respite, we are thankful to all of you – and honored to support these organizations which are helping to build a healthier and more equitable planet.
