Creating a pathway to better healthcare for everyone

Our Values

Nuna Leadership

CEO, Co-Founder

Jini Kim

As a child, Jini learned the frustrating realities of our healthcare system. As an adult, she set out to change it. Prior to founding Nuna in 2010, Jini was a product manager at Google Health, where she developed Google’s genomics strategy and launched Google Public Data. After Obama called Jini to lead the “tech surge” that saved the ailing HealthCare.gov site in 2013, Jini realized that value-based care would be the path to the health system we need and deserve. After building the country’s first National-scale Medicaid data warehouse, she then led Nuna to build the country’s first value-based care financial operating platform, with a mission to make quality healthcare accessible to all Americans.

On weekends, you can find Jini on century bike rides, long runs, or finding the best food in the bay area.

Board Members

John Doerr

An engineer from St. Louis Missouri, John moved to Silicon Valley in 1975 with no job. After cold-calling Intel, they hired John just as they invented the 8-bit microprocessor. A few years later, Kleiner Perkins backed John in launching a start-up of his own. After launching two start-ups, John joined Kliener as Partner and eventual Chairman, where he built his reputation as a legendary investor - with his passion for helping entrepreneurs pursue audacious goals to create secular shifts in technology, mobile services, healthcare transformation, and climate preservation. He was the original venture investor and board member at Google and Amazon, the world’s second and third most valuable companies, creating 1,500,000 jobs. Following his passion for tackling existential societal problems, John became acquainted with healthcare as an original investor in his brother’s company, Lumeris. Seeing the urgent need to advance our Nation’s and healthcare system’s ability to serve all Americans, John sought ways to catalyze industry-wide healthcare.

Another of John’s passions -- the climate crisis on our planet -- inspired him to apply his renowned OKR principles in his latest book entitled Speed & Scale: An Action Plan for Solving our Climate Crisis Now.
