John C. Bower brings 20 years' business experience managing high-growth companies to uBoost Inc. Prior to uBoost, John co-founded Sennet Capital and was the CFO and COO at Hawaii Biotech, where he helped to secure more than $50 million in equity and grant funding.
John came to Hawaii from Chicago, where he'd co-founded and operated HealthRev, a national healthcare-outsourcing company. In less than three years, he expanded HealthRev to 10 states, to more than 200 employees, and to $5 million in annual cash flow.
In 1999, John sold HealthRev to a Chicago-based private equity firm, where he remained for two years to assist the transition. The sale resulted in a 15-x return to investors.
Prior to HealthRev, John was a founder and managing director of a boutique investment company that specialized in debt and equity funding for startups and high-growth companies throughout the United States. He serves on the boards of several Hawaii and Mainland companies. John graduated with Honors with a BS and an MBA from Cornell University.
