Founder Institute is hosting an online event about the Health Tech Startup Ecosystem on Oct 4th.
While it is somewhat bay area focused, I expect it to be more broadly useful.
It is free and open to the public.
Health Tech has a fast growing startup ecosystem, and entrepreneurs here are lucky to have so many resources available to help them in their journey. However, many people don’t know about all of the resources available, the differences between them, or what resources are right for them. At this online and interactive event, we will gather representatives from different entrepreneurial organizations, including and top local entrepreneurs, to outline the local resources and provide tips on how to build a startup in Health Tech.
The Founder Institute HealthTech-focused accelerator program is sponsoring a practice pitch event on Sept 20th.
It’s open to the public and free to present or just attend.
They have assembled an amazing judging panel, including Yan Chow, Jason Novak, and Fay Sahai.
Every mistake you make (or even see) at a practice event like this one is one fewer mistake to make in “real life.”
Reserve your spot now.
Do you have a startup, or a strong idea for a startup? Could you use blunt, honest feedback on your startup ideas? On this live and interactive online event you can pitch your ideas to a panel of Health Tech startup investors and experts for ratings and feedback, all from the comfort of your home. Even if you don’t want to pitch, you are invited to hear startup ideas and watch how the experts analyze businesses.
Orrin Ailloni Charas and I are on an Founder Institute panel this evening (Thursday, 8 September) on funding Health Tech Companies.
We each have special skills and abilities.
It is a privilege when we can use them to improve the world.
I am excited to see that Founder Institute is offering a free program for founders in Ukraine.
I look forward to working with the cohort.
