Start-up Incubator Looks To Revolutionize Health Care Industry
During this year’s SXSW Festival, StartUp Health, a hybrid entrepreneurial incubator and academy focused on reforming the healthcare industry, announced its first class of class of 10 entrepreneurs (chosen from a pool of 400 applicants) who will take part in the intensive three-year program. The curriculum will offer strategic thinking tools and collaborative peer groups designed to help innovators navigate the new digital health field. Unlike similar programs that support start-ups, many of the companies in the inaugural class are well on their way in terms of funding and staff, but are still lacking some of the necessary support and structure to create truly sustainable businesses. The companies represent a diverse vision for improving the delivery of care from mobile tools and real-time data to remote assistance and new therapies.
