From July 29th through August 1st of 2019, VentureOut partnered with Medstartr to power an amazing EXPLORE Healthtech program! In this one-week workshop-filled program, startups learned how to scale and raise capital and got connected with some of the top healthtech influencers and investors in NYC.
Our Partner: Medstartr
Millions of Patients around the world are standing up and taking an active role in their health, including supporting the care innovations that matter most to them. MedStartr enables patients, doctors, institutions, partners, and investors to find and fund the best ideas in healthcare and bring them to life.
VentureOut is proud to have had the opportunity to organize multiple Healthtech programs in partnership with MedStartr since 2017.
A One-Week Hyper Accelerator Program:
Our one-week hyper-accelerator was an opportunity for the most promising healthcare companies selected to become immersed in the health community of New York, meeting with leading startups, corporations, and venture investors. VentureOut’s mission is to empower entrepreneurs with the education, resources, and connections needed to successfully raise capital and grow their business leveraging on all the opportunities NYC has to offer, and our one-week programs are designed to do just that.
Pictured below: some highlights of the program.
Workshops & mentoring
Education and Mentoring are the backbone of any VentureOut program. By partnering with thought leaders in key areas, we give our startups an unfair advantage by arming them with best practices used to scale the most successful companies in Silicon Valley.
investor office visits & Company insights
We gave our startups an opportunity to sit down in a fireside chat setting with some of the top investors and entrepreneurs in the Helthtech space in NYC.
Private investor reception
Scaling a startup is hard. Scaling one in a turbulent and broken healthcare sector…good luck! We were delighted to hear from healthcare veteran and entrepreneur superstar Jo Schneier about how he’s attacked the healthcare industry, scaled Trusty.care, and succeeded in the face of impossible odds. This was an invite-only breakfast reception with an audience consisting primarily of active venture and angel investors focused on HealthTech space.
The Pitch Night
The pitch night is the capstone of the Healthtech Program. We started with networking, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. Following a round of introductions, each startup pitched for 3 minutes and received feedback from each investor on the panel. The night was capped off with more networking and refreshments.
Our investor panel featured:
- Charles Lacalle from DreamIt Ventures
- Gaurav Mehta from Berkeley Angel Network
- Alex Fair from MedStartr
- Peter Frishauf from Medscape
