Julia Cheek on The Creative Fix with SXSW [Video]

Welcome to The Creative Fix with SXSW, a new interview series focusing on creators and their unique work.

Every March, creative minds from around the globe converge in Austin at SXSW to share their work and ideas, and we’re excited to bring that energy straight to your News Feed. Each episode of The Creative Fix will delve into the methods, processes, and inspiration driving some of the most creative minds in the worlds of music, film, tech, and beyond.

On the premiere episode of The Creative Fix, SXSW Conference Programmer Dhinuka Perera sat down for a chat with 2018 SXSW Speaker and entrepreneur Julia Cheek.

Julia Cheek

As the founder of EverlyWell, Cheek came up with a creative fix for one of the most common inconveniences facing patients in the healthcare industry: lab tests. After experiencing the complicated nature of conventional lab testing, Cheek took it upon herself to examine the business behind labs and solve the problems the industry either couldn't or wouldn't. By focusing her startup on offering lab testing directly to consumers, no doctor or hospital visit required, she has disrupted the healthcare space.

Her unique approach hasn't gone unnoticed either. Her startup EverlyWell was recently featured on ABC's Shark Tank, where Shark Lori Griner took a chance on Cheek by offering her the largest investment for a solo female entrepreneur in the entire show’s history.

Join Julia Cheek and Dhinuka Perera for a conversation about her primetime experience and preview of her upcoming session at SXSW 2018 where she and other founders will discuss how our generation of digital natives are hungry for more disruptive technologies from startups just like EverlyWell.
