Richard Gengler, founder
Prevail Health Solutions
Gengler flew F18s in the Navy before starting at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business in 2006. Knowing that many of the soldiers who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health illnesses don’t receive proper care, Gengler started Prevail Health to provide therapy and counseling to veterans with mental health issues. The startup officially launched in April 2008. It has 9 full-time employees and has raised $1.1 million in financing, and hopes to turn a profit in 2010.
