The Power List 2018 – Champions of Change


Melinda Richter

Global Head of JLABS, Johnson & Johnson 

“I had very humble beginnings, and as a young woman I always felt like I didn’t have the same platform that other people had and that I was straying into territory where I didn’t belong. Growing up with five brothers and three sisters gave me the competitive spirit and the independence to go there anyway. My favorite quote is ‘courage is fear that has said its prayers’. Our mission is to make it faster, easier, cheaper and more exciting for innovators and investors to deliver real value and impact for patients. We want to make the business of health just as productive, advanced, sexy and as addictive to participate in as the tech industry.”
