Mike Biselli

After being named 1st Team All PAC-10 and playing in the Rose Bowl with the Stanford Cardinal the following year – all while earning his BA and MA – Mike hung up his football cleats and brought his unwavering determination and collaborative spirit to the field of healthcare.

As a Board Member for Medical Group Management Association, Prime Health, Colorado Bioscience Association, and several other organizations, Mike experienced firsthand the tremendous power a determined community of clinicians, executives, technologists, entrepreneurs, academics, and investors could wield when they work together.

Realizing just how much more could be accomplished if that power were harnessed, Mike developed the industry integrator concept, a new feature of the innovation economy that allows the healthcare industry to be integrated at the point of innovation by physically housing an entire ecosystem in a single location.

In partnership with governmental, non-profit, and commercial organizations, Mike and his team built Catalyst, a 180,000 square foot, first-of-its-kind industry integrator, in Denver’s River North District (RiNo) that houses 60+ health-tech startups, academic institutions, healthcare systems, and Fortune 100s alike in the race to fix healthcare. Catalyst opened its doors in July, 2018.

While Mike continues to be a Catalyst Partner/Owner, his efforts are now focused on his role as Chief Community Officer at BurstIQ. BurstIQ is a HIPAA and GDPR compliant platform creating health profiles for people, places and things, and empowers the interactions between them. The blockchain platform enables health applications and services to incorporate complex data ownership, consent, and monetization … at scale.

The BurstIQ team is creating a deeply connected community of health data anchors and innovators to ignite an international revolution by properly securing, controlling, consenting and monetizing health data.
