I’m excited to share that the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator powered by Techstars program will run its fourth class in Los Angeles starting on July 9, 2018. Applications are now open and will close March 25.
There’s never been a more exciting time to be a healthcare tech entrepreneur. According to CB Insights, funding for digital health startups reached $6.6B in 2016, up from to $5.9B in 2015. But building a healthcare technology company is hard.
Building a healthcare technology company is hard. Though the opportunity is enormous, and you have the ability to literally save lives, the industry is complex and not known for rapid positive change. Nothing is more valuable (and harder to obtain) than access to a large, engaged, health system that not only wants to provide resources to help your company grow but also potentially buy your product. This Spring, the first class graduated from the Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, in partnership with Cedars-Sinai, and the outcomes were phenomenal. All 11 companies signed deals with Cedars-Sinai, and collectively they have raised several million dollars in VC financing from top VC’s.
I am very excited to share that the Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, in partnership with Cedars-Sinai, will be running its second class in Los Angeles starting January 17, 2017. Applications are now open and will close October 15th.
If your company is creating hardware, software, devices, or services that empower patients and healthcare professionals to track, manage, or improve healthcare delivery, we want to meet you. Our first class was a phenomenal success, and we can’t wait to see who applies for our second.
We will update this page shortly with dates and locations for webinars, meetups and office hours. If you are in LA, the Bay Area, Chicago, Minneapolis, London, New York, Washington D.C., Boston, Toronto or Nashville, we would love to meet you in person.
