Justin J. Bellante
Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Justin Bellante is the founder and CEO of BioIQ, the first digital platform for at-home health testing. In response to the death of a loved one, Bellante pioneered the consumer at-home health testing model in 2005, almost a decade before rivals. He started BioIQ as an engineer who looked at the world through physics and thermodynamics — as a large system made up of smaller systems. Throughout the past decade, he has used that lens to innovate within the healthcare system, with a focus on helping millions of people more easily access and navigate the system to better understand their health and take action. Over that time frame, he has worked at the intersection of health plans, employers, and venture capital / private equity along with dozens of cutting-edge business partners to use technology to impact healthcare workflows and payment in consumer, employer, health plan, government, hospital and physician settings.
Bellante holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in materials engineering from CWRU, and started BioIQ during his doctorate program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He has published articles in scientific journals including Science, Applied Physics Letters and MRS Proceedings. A passionate entrepreneur, Bellante lectures in universities on new venture creation, advises start-ups and businesses, and is a sought-after expert on healthcare trends and technology.
He maintains a local and global community of peers through YPO, is certified by the National Association of Corporate Directors, and supports a number of local and national causes. Bellante lives in Miami and can usually be found problem-solving at a white board in his home office or the BioIQ HQ in Atlanta. Otherwise he’s watching football (the FIFA kind), reading the latest on organizational physics, playing on the beach with his kids Charlie and Anna, or enroute to Argentina to visit friends and in-laws.
