Patrick Freuler is a Swiss entrepreneur with a Masters in aerospace engineering from MIT. He worked as a consultant at Mckinsey, then as an investor at Bain Capital, where he discovered the enormous cost and complexities of getting a hearing aid in America. The issue of access to treatment hit home with Freuler on a personal level, with his grandmother’s own experience with hearing loss.
In 2012, Freuler left Bain to found Audicus, on the simple principle that getting a high-quality hearing aid should be easy, accessible, and affordable. Since then, Audicus has reimagined how hearing health is done with the world’s first accurate Online Hearing Test and by making high-quality hearing health radically more affordable and accessible with an innovative DTC model and unlimited access to experts.
