Eren Bali is a technology luminary with an entrepreneurial vision and a passion for human rights, chief among those are access to education and healthcare. It’s become his life’s mission to tackle disparities in these sectors, inspiring him to build Udemy and Carbon Health.

As the co-founder and CEO of Carbon Health, Eren leads the company on its mission to make essential healthcare services more accessible. Leveraging its unique technology platform, Carbon Health provides patients with advanced primary care, designed to meet patients where they are across a variety of access points, including in-person clinics, virtual care and remote patient monitoring (RPM).
