Co-founder Fred Moll and his team at California-based Auris Health spent six years building the Monarch Platform, a robot that helps doctors navigate the twists and turns in your lungs to detect cancer. And that’s just the beginning. In March, Auris won FDA clearance to use it to screen for lung cancer, which kills 1.7 million people worldwide each year. Moll believes better screening can improve survival rates, but the company hopes that eventually the Monarch will be used not just for diagnosis but for treatment as well. Link in bio.

What does a day in Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal’s life look like? We spent a day with him as he runs around New York City. “Whenever I can, I try and walk to work,” says Blumenthal. “It gives me an opportunity to reflect on what I want to accomplish throughout the day, and I find that it just makes the day better.” Click the link in our bio to see more.⠀

Joe Nocella is the founder of Brooklyn-based 718 Cyclery, a shop catering to the serious cyclist. Despite bringing in $1 million a year, the company’s growth has plateaued. So Nocella got a little help from serial entrepreneur Norm Brodsky, who recommended he take advantage of 718 Cyclery’s 6,000-customer mailing list. “You can bring them stuff that they maybe don't know about,” says Brodsky. “If I were you, I'd do a lot of research on other ways you can monetize that customer list. For example, people who organize bike trips are always looking for people to go on them. You can funnel your list to them and get commissions.” Link in bio. (📸: @arturoolmos)⠀

Many of the two million prisoners in the U.S. are nonviolent offenders awaiting trial. “Seventy percent of people held in county jails have not been convicted of a crime,” says Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins, co-founder and CEO of Oakland-based Promise. “They can't afford bail and are just waiting for a trial.” Promise works with cities and counties to release these prisoners, and provides an app and support system to keep them current with court appointments and hearings. “I know technology can create better models for government. But if we don't use it to change the human condition, it will never be a positive force.” Link in bio. (📸:@kaylareefer)⠀

This year, after lagging far behind Blue Apron for most of its entire history, German startup HelloFresh blew past 100 competitors to become the No. 1 meal-kit company on the planet. So, how’d they do it? Hundreds of millions of venture capital dollars, aggressive marketing tactics, health department complaints, threats of violence, hard drugs, dumb money, and, at its center, founders who have been so relentlessly focused on growth, they've barely stopped to consider what happens when they actually win.

You don't have to be a superb cyclist to work at Rad Power Bikes, but you do have to enjoy frequent bike rides. The three-year-old startup, which makes electric bicycles, issues one to each employee--and ends many workdays with staff rides through Seattle. Co-founder and CEO Mike Radenbaugh built his first electric bike as a 15-year-old, to commute to high school in rural Northern California. Ten years later, he roped in friends Ty Collins and Marimar White-Espin to start the company, which sold $20 million worth of wheels last year. (📸: @nilsericson)⠀

After winning a team skydiving event in 1979, Tony Uragallo came up with the idea for @tony_suits: a business making jumpsuits, tracking suits, and wingsuits for skydivers and BASE jumpers. When Uragallo made the first jumpsuit on his mother’s sewing machine, skydiving friends immediately demanded copies. "I sold my rig, my harness, everything,” he says. “I bought a car and a sewing machine, rented a house, and started making jumpsuits." Today, TonySuits sell for $1,000 to $2,000 each. “To this day, I still make prototypes. You jump and test it and see how it feels." Link in bio. (📸: @bob_croslin)⠀

It’s a common business challenge: How do you elicit feedback from your team about your performance? Inc. 5000 honorees have a few recommendations. "We use SurveyMonkey about four times a year to take a pulse check on the culture and the performance of management,” says Jennifer Prosek, founder and CEO of Prosek Partners. “Also, as painful as they may be to read, the posts on Glassdoor are incredibly useful.” Others are more direct. Christina Urquhart, the founder and CEO of Charm City Concierge says, "We ask new employees for honest feed­back about the onboarding program. And I'm looking to start 'lunchtime chats' with small groups." Link in bio. (📸: @t_mmyparker)⠀
