Oskaloosa Native and Entrepreneur Shares What Sparked His Passion for Improving the Organ Transplant Industry


Oskaloosa native and 2018 Forbes ‘30 Under 30’ recipient, Dalton Shaull, will present on Thursday, March 29, at 6:00 p.m. in the Musco Technology Center (MTC) on William Penn University’s Oskaloosa campus. Shaull’s presentation will be about his inspiration and journey to creating HeathTech Solutions and its first innovation, TXP ChatTM.  The IT start-up company was founded in 2016 with the goal to create a more effective organ procurement process.  Its original product is an app that secures communication between organ transplant industries and clinicians.

“HealthTech Solutions is a prime example of how an innovative technology-focused small business can enhance life. Entrepreneurs like Dalton are critical to everyone’s future,” David Meinert, Assistant Teaching Professor of Business and Accounting at William Penn University.
