I’ve known Greg Tracy since before founding Redox, connecting over civic hacking projects in Madison, Wisconsin. As the co-founder and CTO, Greg helped Propeller Health from its inception to serving patients across the globe and through its recent acquisition by ResMed (for $225M), where he now serves as the chief architect.

Greg shares the Propeller Health story, their early choice to go through FDA clearance, and how they built the business into a global brand, as well as the constant struggle to prioritize projects, no matter how large the organization. He’s always been a mentor to the up and coming developer-leaders in Madison; this conversation exemplifies this. Thanks for the great conversation Greg!
