As a technologist as well as an industry executive, Mr. Coleman’s work synthesizes public data, technological platform considerations, and business trends.

Mr. Coleman’s research includes the dental insurance market where he has studied market size, product characteristics, and dental benefit availability within different insurance categories. Mr. Coleman has also analyzed the dental plan market in the context of start-up success potential.
