The SIP: The Coke Scholars Ignite Podcast


When Spit Saves the World (and Builds a Business) with Jason Feldman (1990)

December 15, 2020

From The Home Depot to The Body Shop to Amazon to Vault Health, Jason Feldman (1990) describes his career as a game and chutes and ladders. His navigating force: using business to do good in the world.

In this episode of The SIP, Sue Suh (1992), the first Chief People Officer for TIME, interviews fellow Coke Scholar and good friend Jason Feldman about his journey to co-founding Vault Health, a startup specializing in healthcare for men that turned its focus to distributing the first FDA EUA approved at-home saliva test for COVID-19, helping the PGA, NBA, and NHL resume practice and games and universities reopen their doors.

The two also talk about Jason’s 18-year-old triplets, who are spending their senior year working at Vault Health testing sites, and his love of autobiographies and Madonna.

The episode is introduced by Ericka Jones (2011).

The SIP, short for the Coke Scholars Ignite Podcast, shares a taste of the Coke Scholars around the world who are igniting positive change.
