Dr. Jeff Wessler co-founded Heartbeat Health in 2016 to develop better heart care, and Kanyi Maqubela helped kickstart the company by writing the company's pre-seed check. We're excited to host both of them on the first 2022 episode of TechCrunch Live.

After writing the company's pre-seed check, Kanyi Maqubela joined Heartbeat Health's founding team and board of directors in 2017. Maqubela's firm, Kindred Ventures, reinvested in Heartbeat Health over the next two rounds.
