Committee Member: Michael Greeley
Boston - Co-Founder and General Partner at Flare Capital Partners
From Hong Kong, to New York, or Boston, no matter where Michael Greeley may stay, he is always looking to the future in his hopes and efforts to reinvent and transform the business of healthcare. Beginning his career in the venture capitalist field after straying away from his plan to become a doctor after college, Greeley has found his time and energy focused on healthcare technology with Flare Capital Partners, where he is the Co-Founder and General Partner. Though Greeley dreams of sailing the Adriatic Sea with his family and going road tripping with Barack Obama, Anderson Cooper and Jerry Seinfeld, his focus for now lies in his early-stage healthcare technology venture fund, attempting to transform the business of healthcare.
New Yorker but grew up in Hong Kong.
Prep school at Exeter, college at Williams College (Organic Chemistry major) and then Harvard Business School (after taking my MCATs – ugh). Went to a German Swiss school while living in Hong Kong – that was confusing.
Cringe while watching football – so brutal and as a healthcare tech investor, it is scary as we better understand the risks and damage being done.
Really?!? I am mid-50s so it is tennis for me.
Sailing the Croatian coast with family (even better than St. Barth’s).
Have sort of an odd answer – will eat another ~10,000 dinners so not stuck on any one particular meal but if pressed, really love gnocchi and spare ribs. Don’t really enjoy shellfish.
Apple pie with cinnamon and vanilla ice cream.
Anything at Scampo but a simple pasta at the bar cannot be topped.
Barack Obama, Anderson Cooper and Jerry Seinfeld – to try to make sense of what is happening while laughing the entire time. Would love to also have Kenan Thompson in the car as well, even if we needed to get a mini-van.
Listening to a lot of Angus and Julia Stone, Sons of Maria, Thievery Corporation, Groove Armada.
Elton John in Vegas.
My kids have my car.
The one my kids have.
An old Audi with hand-cranked convertible top and mahogany dashboard – broke down all the time.
Are you kidding? Never.
My Paul Picot.
Mezcal with splash of grapefruit.
Love Cotswold Gin.
Drinking a lot of rosé, nearly all-year around.
Parsons Beach in Maine.
Charles Street Supply on Beacon Hill – amazing how much stuff is in that small hardware store.
Exercise and catching up on reading.
You are only as valuable as how you spend your time and who you know! Not sure that is right but it has certainly informs how to schedule your day!
Healthcare investors get to do good and do well at the same time, presumably (hopefully).
I am most focused on inner city youth violence, a tragedy that is terribly confounding. Kids should not be shooting other kids.
I have started an early-stage healthcare technology venture fund, managing nearly $500 million. The business of healthcare is being transformed and it is fascinating to have a court-side seat while that is happening. We get to partner with some of the most brilliant, most passionate entrepreneurs on the planet.
