UnitedHealth Group Inc. is a huge corporation, a leader in size and intrigue among the state's other huge enterprises.

"A digital-health venture with a growing operation in downtown Minneapolis, Rally Health sets out to disrupt from the inside and challenge health care practices by bringing on industry outsiders," writes Alex Wittenberg.
"For Karl Ulfers, chief product officer and Rally's top executive in Minneapolis, fostering an outsider's lens is critical."
