Our annual pitch competition where startups in different healthcare verticals vie to beat out the competition during our INVEST conference is back.
This year, the conference will be held May 1-2 at our usual venue — the Four Seasons hotel, Chicago in 2018. INVEST is held with our partner — the Mid-America Healthcare Investors Network.
At this year’s conference, more than 40 startups presented and judges peppered them with questions to select the winners. These were the 2017 winners.
To see how you stack up next to the most innovative healthcare startups nationally, you should apply now. Products and innovations must come from the following 5 categories:
– medical devices
– digital health and health IT
– health services
When completing the 2-page executive summary and the 500-character company description in the application form, please describe clearly what the unmet need in the marketplace is, what your value proposition is and how your product works in terms of the science behind it. For instance, for biopharma startups, the science could be the mechanism of action. If you have results of a pilot or other relevant information, please include.
This will help investors screen your application based on the following criteria:
The deadline to apply is January 15.
We are adding judges as we speak, but here are some that have confirmed: Jason Fuller, principal at NEA, Jessica Zeaske, director, GE Ventures, and Erik Halvorsen, director, Texas Medical Center Accelerator (TMCx).
