As Seen on Denver Business Journal
Chase Terwilliger, president, and CEO of Balanced Health Botanicals is a winner in DBJ’s 2022 40 Under 40 awards program.
Title: President, CEO
Company: Balanced Health Botanicals
Alma mater: University of Colorado Boulder; Arizona State University
Neighborhood: Cherry Hills Village

The easiest way to describe Chase Terwilliger’s top 2021 accomplishment is this: He sold his bootstrapped cannabis company to a NASDAQ-listed firm for $75 million. Balanced Health Botanicals wasn’t his first successful exit, though. He led Redstone Surgical, a company he founded, through an acquisition, and then created and sold Silvernest to Incenter.
When he’s not being a serial entrepreneur, you’ll find Terwilliger raising money for colorectal cancer awareness in people under the age of 45.
Not-so-secret talent: I’m a good people person. I enjoy leading teams and coordinating the completion of complex projects and initiatives.
Denver’s best-kept secret: Birdcall
Denver’s secret talent: Denver is a young city that is filled with healthy people that drive people to be even more healthy. When you travel as much as I do, you see that there are few cities in the country that put such a heavy focus on health. That’s truly special and something that is hard to replicate.

Community focus: I’m an impact leader at the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. I help raise money for colorectal cancer awareness in people below the age of 45. Along with my wife, we will be putting on our first large charity event in September with a goal of raising $50,000 for the Colorectal Cancer Alliance.
Advice for future 40 Under 40s: Wake up early, mentally walk through each day and decide on one thing that you must accomplish.
