Judy Faulkner is the founder and CEO of Epic Systems. Judy started Epic in 1979 in a basement in Madison, Wisconsin, and 41 years later more than 250 million patients have a current electronic record in Epic. Her company’s enormous success led Forbes to name Judy the most successful female technology company founder. One of the few self-made women billionaires, Judy has signed the Giving Pledge started by Bill & Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett, pledging 99% of her assets to philanthropy to help others. In our discussion, Judy takes us back to the start of Epic, when she was a student lured into the new field of computer science, and the journey that brought her to where she is today.
