Brooks Bell

Brooks Bell is founder and executive chairman of Brooks Bell, Inc. Bell founded the technology-enabled agency focused exclusively on solving complex business problems through experimentation for enterprise brands where Bell drives the vision and core values at the organization. She is a recognized thought leader in analytics and entrepreneurship, and she has been featured in publications including Inc. Magazine, Forbes, Washington Post and Techonomy. 

In addition to her business role, Bell is dedicated to educating the public about young-onset colon cancer and elevating the conversation about colonoscopies. Bell was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer at the age of 38. Through her experience, Bell realized that colon cancer is more common and deadlier than many people realize but is rarely discussed due to stigma. So, she started an advocacy campaign, 50 Colonoscopies Under 50, which seeks to celebrate young people who publicly share their colonoscopy experiences, helping to destigmatize the screening process.

As an entrepreneur and health advocate, Bell is active on several boards of directors including serving as a board member for the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, Raleigh Founded, and the Research Triangle Foundation. In addition, she is a member of the board of advisors for the Duke Raleigh Hospital. 

A native of Alaska, Bell earned her B.A. from Duke University in 2001.
