Schwartz ’87 Creates Public Health Venture

Jonathan Schwartz '87

Jonathan Schwartz ’87, former CEO of Sun Microsystems, recently announced a new venture in the area of health technology called Picture of Health.

In a recent blog, Schwartz writes: “We’re not saying much beyond ‘we’re focusing on the intersection of innovation and public health,’ but we are starting to build out a dev and design team. So if you care about health and technology, we’d love to hear from you here.

“Why are we focusing on health? It’s ultimately a personal choice for both of us. For me, perhaps the most satisfying part of my last job was seeing Sun’s technology used in ways and by people that changed the world. Whether that was inventing a new business, creating a new market or creating national infrastructure, I had infinite faith in my team and our technology, so it was easy to sell what we offered.”

Schwartz holds degrees in mathematics and economics from Wesleyan.
