Founder Story

Josh Rome Founder & CEO

Josh Rome is an avid traveler and third generation healthcare entrepreneur.

A multi-generational trip to the Amazon rainforest at 8 years old sparked Josh’s passion for travel at a young age. Since then, he’s explored over 65 countries, circumnavigated the globe on Semester at Sea, and climbed mountains like Kilimanjaro and Toubkal in Africa. Josh’s passion for travel and healthcare run deep.

After a successful exit from the pharmaceutical industry, Josh wanted to better align his career with his passions and opened up a boutique travel agency. While building this business, Josh was frustrated by the limited solutions that his clients had access to in obtaining necessary prescription medications for their upcoming trips.

With the average wait time to see a Primary Care Provider exceeding 20 days and the notoriously expensive, fragmented and antiquated system of brick-and-mortar travel clinics, Josh knew there should be a better solution. Leveraging his career across the tech, pharma, and travel sectors, Josh built Runway to become the first direct-to-consumer telehealth company focused entirely on travel health.
