Leadership
Dr. Kingsley R. CHIN
Founder, Managing Partner & CEO
Dr. Kingsley R. Chin has an inimitable combination of life experiences, from humble beginnings in Jamaica to the best Ivy League education and training at Columbia University, Harvard Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania, with business exposure at Fortune 500 companies like AT&T Bell Labs, Arthur Anderson Consulting, Goldman Sachs and Cigna Insurance. He has over 10 years of experience as a CEO, and he raised and deployed over $190 million in capital. His unique career in healthcare technology has spanned over 28 years.
Dr. Chin is the embodiment of finding ways to succeed against all odds and being a quick study. He is fanatic about time management and organization. Dr. Chin learned an important lesson when the internet bubble burst in 2000, amid launching the first internet based healthcare distant learning company, MeduWeb.com (Medical Education on the Web), which Dr. Chin founded with two MIT software engineers. He bounced back with his invention of medical devices, starting several more healthcare companies – including Mantis Inc., a less invasive pedicle screw technology company, which he sold to Stryker in a multimillion dollar deal in 2005. Flush with capital, he founded KICVentures.
Dr. Chin made the bold decision to remain an actively practicing board certified orthopedic and spine surgeon, because of the unique perspective it provides in understanding the market and making investment decisions – which no other investment firm leadership is capable of. Today, he has 40+ patents, has treated 25,000+ patients, completed 5,000+ procedures, published 80+ peer reviewed articles, and is a professor and public speaker who dedicates two days each week to seeing patients, a full day to surgery and 24/7 to the business of medicine.
To Dr. Chin, leadership is empowering a team to make the impossible possible. Dr. Chin’s ethos is embodied in the KIC acronym of KICVentures: Acquire the necessary knowledge, take strategic initiatives and close. He believes he owes it to society to achieve the greatest level of success humanly possible, every day. Review his CV here
