Ilya Vakhutinsky

I’m the Cofounder and CEO of Careswitch. I started Careswitch because I saw from an early age the important, yet undervalued, role caregivers play in our society. My mom was a home health aide when my family immigrated to the US and eventually grew to become a nursing director at a home care agency where I took a summer job. I was awarded Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2020 for my work.

Prior to Careswitch, I was on the founding team of Quartet, a successful venture backed company, where I led product development of the mental health professional product line. I was also chosen for Peter Thiel's "20 Under 20" Fellowship which recognized young people who wanted to build new things rather than sit in a classroom.
