Our "Practice Pitch Breakfast" is not a competition. It is a time for entrepreneurs and investors to fellowship, learn from each other and build relationships with one another no matter where we are located. Join us for our upcoming virtual "breakfast" where you will learn from companies practicing their pitch and gain insight from guest speakers on industry specific topics. Our goal is to come in as strangers and leave as family.

"Transforming souls, is our sole purpose!"
To nurture a permanent change in a city like Bridgeport, we believe we must provide wholesome programs and services that promotes health in every area of an individual's life. Our ecosystem of social enterprises provides economic, physical and spiritual solutions, to serve the under-served.

Tony Dale of Sedera
Tony is committed to changing healthcare for the better. As founder and Chairman of The Karis Group and Sedera, Tony has directly impacted the lives of millions of patients seeking the best possible care at fair and affordable prices.
His interest in tackling the business side of healthcare began following his rude introduction to the American medical system when he injured his knee playing basketball and needed knee surgery. After being quoted an initial price and then receiving a significantly larger bill, Tony determined to find a way to help people find better access to quality and affordable care.
Tony founded The Karis Group in 1996 to help patients negotiate their exorbitant medical bills. In 2014, recognizing the unmet needs in the traditional health insurance industry, Tony founded Sedera as an alternative Medical Cost Sharing solution.
