The Edge of Chaos congratulates Larry Lawal, Founder and CEO of Healthfundit, as one of the winners of Alabama Launchpad 2014. Larry impressed the judges last week in a “Shark Tank”-style contest staged by the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama (EDPA). Gov. Robert Bentley was on hand to help pass out checks to the winners at The Alabama Innovation and Entrepreneurship Conference at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex.
Larry Lawal started Healthfundit with the goal of making research projects for hard-to-cure diseases more successful by increasing their funding. Healthfundit is a crowd engagement platform that has the potential to funnel more medical research money for common but deadly diseases. The company assists researcher to advance and accelerate their work, making medical breakthroughs possible.
For the last two years Larry has worked out of The Edge of Chaos, designing the web site and developing the core business strategies of the company. Again, congrats to one of our own! Larry Lawal, take a bow.
