Interview with David Isserman from RareShare

Download interview or listen to it:

rareshareRareShare was co-founded by David Isserman and Eric Steel in early 2008 on the idea that there is a better way to bring together patients, families and healthcare professionals to share knowledge and personal experiences about rare medical disorders.

While rare disorders may seem to impact only a small portion of the population, together they affect over 30 million individuals in the United States and Europe alone.

Due to the comparably low level of occurrences of individual rare disorders, there is often a lack of information and support for patients and their families. Our communities are designed for people to share experiences, explore treatment options and find support among others affected by the same disorders.

David Isserman is an experienced entrepreneur with a passion for building companies. Over the years, David has amassed a broad range of knowledge working in the technology, consumer products, retail, biotech, and public relations industries. Prior to founding RareShare, David founded Isserman Consulting, a successful communications and strategy consultancy that advised early-stage companies. Before that, he was a co-founder of The Selling Block, a company specializing in asset liquidation for businesses, which he sold in 2006. David holds a Bachelor’s in Business from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business and is currently an MBA candidate at Columbia Business School in New York.

Eric Steele’s background centers around the financing and operations of high growth technology firms. Prior to RareShare, Eric founded ForePoint Networks, a wireless internet service provider delivering high-speed connectivity throughout rural Indiana. Eric has extensive experience working with angel and venture investors and has assisted in closing multiple rounds of financing in both management and consulting roles. Eric is actively involved in the community and sits on numerous boards ranging from entrepreneurship to community outreach.
