Zachary Sweeney is a senior in the Huntsman Program at UPenn and grant recipient from the 10,000 Entrepreneurs program (or 10KE), an initiative of Alumni Ventures Group aimed at helping young adults explore entrepreneurial careers. As Co-Founder and CEO of Lolly Medical, Zach and his team are building a healthtech platform that allows patients to schedule a doctor’s appointment with the push of a button.
