Dr. David Bach

Founder and President, Platypus Institute


Dr. Bach is the Founder and Chairman of the Platypus Institute, a research organization that studies peak performance technologies.

Dr. Bach is a Harvard-trained scientist, physician and serial entrepreneur. Prior to founding the Platypus Institute, he started and built three $100 million healthcare service companies. He has also been a venture capitalist (with TA Associates), a competitive martial artist and a professional musician.

After a decade-long quest to maximize his own mental and physical performance, during which he personally tried out over 75 different approaches to re-wire his brain and body, Dr. Bach created the Platypus Institute with two goals in mind:

  • To bring scientific rigor to the rapidly growing field of human performance optimization

  • To identify the most effective and efficient technologies we can use today to radically enhance our effectiveness and life-experience

One of the Institute’s primary objectives is to identify practical techniques business executives can use to "rewire" their brains and bodies to dramatically enhance their effectiveness.
