Meet the Sproutelians

We are digital storytellers, engineers, artists, tinkerers, troublemakers, and doers. As different as we come, we share one thing in common: our personal commitment to creating a healthier world, driven by our experiences with illness.

Sproutel is uniquely positioned at the intersection of tech, design, and social good. It is not lost on us that it is imperative to build a diverse team. As we continue to grow, we have immediate goals to build a US-based team and global collaborator network that truly reflects the diversity we need to see in design and technology. We hope you'll join us in that mission.
