How to Strive for Excellence with Iman Abuzeid of Incredible Health

There is a major nursing shortage plaguing the U.S. health care system. By 2024, we're on track to be short over one million nurses. Yet, for working nurses looking for a new job, the average job search lasts 90 days. Incredible Health, co-founded by Iman Abuzeid in 2017, has reduced that search time to less than 20 days. Incredible Health is the fastest-growing venture-backed career marketplace for health care workers. The company has partnered with over 500 hospitals to offer its proprietary matching software and plays an integral role in supporting nurses throughout their careers. Iman shares why she picked the entrepreneurship path after graduating from medical school, how her grandfathers' experiences as founders make her comfortable with risk, and why a CEO support group is essential.
