82. Zach Nielsen – Ascend Health

Danelle and Steve talk with Zach Nielsen, co-founder and CEO of Ascend Health Group, which includes Ascend Health services, software company Bruno Health, and hardware operation Obdo.

Established in 2017, the group provides care services in the national disability and health sectors. A physiotherapist by training, Zach and his team operate in Western Australia and Queensland, and have plans to launch into other states over the next few years.

“I was already building Ascend in my last year of university. I had already seen the value of having smart, dedicated young people with fire in their belly. People go into these health science degrees because they want to help people…” ~ Zach Nielsen
