Dimagi is an award-winning, socially conscious technology company that helps organizations deliver quality healthcare to urban and rural communities around the world. Dimagi designs clinical interfaces, health information systems, and mobile technologies to perform patient-level disease management, clinical decision support, and health system monitoring. We have a strong history of successful project execution acting as a technical lead partnered with an in-country implementation lead. This model has been successfully implemented for pilot-phase projects and countrywide deployments. In addition, Dimagi also has 10 years of experience participating in and leading research for healthcare delivery in underserved populations.
With over 6,000 registered mobile users from over 80 active projects across 31 countries, CommCare, Dimagi's flagship mobile health solution, is one of the most technically advanced, evidence-based, and widely adopted mHealth solutions. CommCare has emerged as a market winner and our focus on research and gathering evidence to support our activities has helped guide our industry.
Jonathan has helped shape Dimagi to become one of the most respected technical organizations in the fast-growing areas of electronic health and mobile health with open source projects in over 31 countries and with an impressive list of clients, partners and funders. Dimagi is a place where people love what they do, and are proud of the impact they are making; Jonathan has overseen the growth of the company from just the founding team to over 60 world-wide employees. He made an uncompromising commitment to open source software and developed a highly interactive collaborative culture that began to attract a range of partners from academics to foundations and multilateral organizations. Jonathan's social drive and determination underpins the company's internal bottom lines: Dimagi cares about impact, team satisfaction, and profit (in that order).
Jonathan continues to be an active supporter of social innovation in Boston, India, and globally. He never misses a chance to engage recent graduates or cofounders in social enterprises to think critically about whether they really do have a market-fit for which "normal" business practices apply, or if they are dealing with a semi or fully dysfunctional marketplace.
Jonathan regularly advises social enterprises in the Harvard and MIT community. He is a frequent speaker about social enterprises and a judge for the MIT 100K competition. Jonathan is also a member of an angel investing group recently started in India to provide incubation and capital. Through all of these interactions, Jonathan regularly highlights the point that social innovation is about knowing when to "out-collaborate" your way through the markets rather than "out-compete."
Our goals for Dimagi go beyond the direct impact of our products. We speak often about innovation and social enterprise to contribute to the larger movement of creating non-traditional approaches to combining business success, social impact, and personal growth. We would like to learn from others working towards similar goals and share our lessons learned with them to drive social impact.

I would describe myself as a forward thinker with strong leadership skills. Since the beginning I've worked on guiding the Dream Water team to not only help people sleep, but also help them lead better lives. While prescription and chemical sleep aids dominate the market, the majority of the 70 million Americans with sleeping issues don't take anything at all. Dream Water strives to educate consumers about the natural options and alternatives that can help them maintain a proper sleep cycle. As a natural alternative to an addictive, life-altering chemical pill, Dream Water helps people live healthier, longer, and productive lives.
Over the past two years, Dream Water has donated over $100,000 worth of product to the US Military, and has helped veterans find employment, including hiring a veteran as our own VP of Manufacturing, through direct outreach. In addition, Dream Water has brought over 75 jobs to the United States through direct and indirect hires. We have also provided support to the local March of Dimes and Camillus House organizations over the last three years. Our company culture at Dream Water is to give back to our community and help others lead balanced, healthy lives.
