Before Ara Chackerian became invovled with TMS Health Solutions, he worked as an entrepreneur and investor. For a good part of his life, he invested in healthcare companies and other health-tech and helped healthcare companies to construct the business that envisioned. Some of the healthcare companies that he helped to build include PipelineRx, Embion/Provider Links, and BMC Diagnostics, and he is now also a board member for many different San Francisco bay area companies. One of his greatest passions, aside from helping early-stage healthcare companies, is helping to protect the environment of the earth, and to aid with this cause, he has invested in a Teak plantation located in Nicaragua that is helping to reforest the area.

Ara Chackerian has admitted that many of his ideas come directly from his own life experiences and that he has always felt that the best way to come up with new ideas is to take an active part in life. He says that he learned a lot about looking deeply into life through his parents who always encouraged him. Over the years, he has also learned how to tackle challenges and obstacles that come up in a calm manner and feels he is much better able to spot issues before they become large problems because of his experience. If he could give his younger self one piece of advice, it would be to carefully choose his business partners, because while some of them can be helpful, there are some who have the ability to wreak havoc on any project they are a part of.
