SAN FRANCISCO, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Launchpad Digital Health, the leading next generation of seed funds + accelerator for digital health, announces it has moved into to occupy its new headquarter building in San Francisco near the Twitter building and complex beginning July 1st. This state-of-the art facility, newly built-out and designed as a digital health hub, is a single 3-story building fully occupied by Launchpad Digital Health, its portfolio companies, new LDH-GZ program companies, and its corporate partners. Eighteen companies are already co-located in this new location.
LDH also recently announced the expansion of its senior team and the addition of the LDH-GZ program and corporate partnerships. Randall Lipps and Paul Edwards joined LDH and LDH-GZ as general partners.
"Moving the Launchpad Digital Health operation to our own building in San Francisco substantially expands our offerings and enhances our leading position in digital health. Working alongside Baskin Investment Group (BIG) has been a pleasure, and it is gratifying to see this quickly come to closure leading to our launch date of July 1st," said Fred Toney, CEO & Co-Founder. BIG is a real estate development company, who led the purchase, rebuilding, and build-out of the facility,
"We are thrilled to welcome Fred Toney and his team to our newly completed creative tech space. In partnership with Launchpad Digital Health, we sought an artful redesign of 1275 Mission balancing modern design with 'windows' into the past of this vintage 1917 building. These peeks into original construction elements of brick, timber, concrete and steel foster an inspired environment for a digital health hub in the heart of SoMa," said Bryan Baskin, CEO of BIG.
