QuicksortRx Cofounder and CEO Jonathan Yantis on Intrapreneurship, Focus, and Hiring

Welcome to The Shawn Jenkins Podcast. In this episode, we talked to Jonathan Yantis. Jonathan is cofounder and CEO of QuicksortRx. QuicksortRx is a pharmaceutical spend analytics platform that helps hospitals and health systems identify savings by evaluating their purchasing trends and market price changes in real time, automatically identifying action steps to lower the cost of buying medicines. It’s a real game changer. 

In this episode, we discuss how Jonathan spent 14 years at his first job out of college, looking for the right problem to solve, which would become his first startup company; how intrapreneurship at large companies can lead to entrepreneurship and how institutions can create a space for innovation; the joy of building software that people love to use; how a relentless focus on creating value for the user results in great products; advice for founders on hiring your first salesperson and so much more. 

Please enjoy my conversation with Jonathan. And if you have any questions that you’d like to hear covered in future episodes or recommendations for future guests, please email me at Thanks and enjoy.
