Don't miss an opportunity to meet the managing directors of DreamIt Health, network with other healthtech entrepreneurs and get your questions answered about their inaugural accelerator program.
DreamIt Health is an intensive program for nascent health IT ventures to give them unfair advantages in the market and de-risk as quickly as possible. Healthcare is an industry that is particularly challenging for startups to penetrate. To speed those innovations to market, DreamIt Health has been designed to tackle key challenges upfront and give its participants advantages in successfully commercializing products that we expect to have a dramatic impact on the industry. Key aspects of the program are:
• Enterprise focus: where we see the bulk of the opportunity
• Multi-stakeholder: payer/provider collaboration is a must in the era of value-based healthcare
• Access: to key resources (systems, data) + beta customers
• Geography: density of talent and opportunity in Philadelphia; a microcosm of the national industry
• Experience: DreamIt + Independence Blue Cross + Penn Medicine + successful health IT entrepreneurs
Powered by Independence Blue Cross and Penn Medicine, and running from April thru July 2013 in Philadelphia, selected companies are paired with seasoned mentors, work with and learn from the leading practitioners in the field, receive free space, legal and accounting services, have doors opened to prospective customers, and get exposure to potential investors. Along the way you benefit from a crash course in healthcare entrepreneurship covering critical topics from selling into payers, providers and pharma to healthcare business models to regulatory compliance to data interoperability. The program concludes with Demo Day presentations to over a hundred early-stage health IT investors from around the US.
We're hitting the road to speak with entrepreneurs interested in the program. Our first stop, BOSTON!
