Dave Sabey

Dave Sabey

From the beginning of a career spanning more than 40 years, Dave Sabey has sought out people with a fresh perspective, an inspired vision and a relentless sense of purpose. Among his earliest developments were building Boeing Electronics clean rooms, constructing ADP’s first data center, building and owning one of McCaw Cellular’s first switches, developing facilities for Exodus Communications, provider of the world’s first internet colocation services — even Starbucks‘ first external roasting plant— all were breaking new ground in industries of world-wide importance.

Today, that trend continues both through real estate development and investment with a particular focus on high performance data centers, healthcare & life science research and communications. From IT efficiencies and technology platforms dedicated to solving some of the hardest problems facing health care and life science, Dave is passionate about promoting ideas that positively change the world.

One of those ventures is CODONiS, a company recently co-founded with Jim Harding, a veteran Vice President of Technology for Amazon, to develop technology platform services for Life Sciences & Health Care and to optimize hyper-computational applications and cloud services designed specifically for major hospitals.

Dave is also founder of the Seattle Science Foundation which was established to foster the collaboration of medical scientists, practitioners, and engineers through high bandwidth transmissions while sharing some of the world’s most sophisticated skill sets. Through the Foundation and his work with some of medical technology’s most creative and productive thought leaders, Dave is helping to advance a global healthcare network with Seattle as a central node.

Jim Harding is a technology entrepreneur experienced in disrupting markets across industries whose roots go back to the original team that created and sold DOS to Microsoft. He developed the first PC database, Revelation, to run on local area networks. His experience helped to advise Bill Gates through Microsoft's database road map.

He founded ServerWare to develop InfoModeler which became part of Visio & Microsoft. There, he received patents on semantic data modeling & query languages that were a precursor to the semantic web and graph databases.

Through a tech transfer out of Battelle Labs, Jim ran Cartia, an award-winning pioneer in early machine learning techniques on 'big data' text sources used by defense, patent research, and web-based knowledge mining. Cartia used an innovative clustered topical analysis to navigate information-based 3D topic maps.

He co-founded PhotoTrust, the first on-line photo sharing website with photo contests and archiving. He joined Amazon.com in 2000 and was VP Technology leading the teams that built the 3rd-party re-seller platform - a highly-scaled web-service allowing virtual inventory from any re-seller of any size anywhere in the world. He holds Amazon patents on re-seller data metrics and loyalty.

Jim was president of FinancePro, Sr VP of Vertafore and CEO of Cirqe which integrated social networking with email.

With Dave Sabey, Jim co-founded CODONiS, a bioinfromatics cloud platform for life sciences. He rolled this into MultiScale Health Networks as a joint-venture with Providence Health & Services to address the need to lower cost and improve outcomes in heath care. MultiScale's mission is to optimize care efficiency through Clinical Guidance System technology.
