How to Increase Productivity and ROI through Coaching and Mentoring | Sunday, September 16 | 12:30 - 1:30 PM

Eric Schmidt, Bill Gates has one, Dr. Atul Gawande and Dr. Noseworthy (President and CEO of Mayo Clinic) each have a coach. According to Fortune magazine, managers ascribe an average return of more than six times the cost of coaching. The top areas that CEOs use coaching to improve are sharing leadership/delegation, conflict management, team building, and mentoring. This discussion will focus on the competitive edge for those who engage coaches and mentors, as well as what to ask when you’re coach-shopping.

Health 2.0 VentureConnect | Sunday, September 16 | 2:00 - 3:30 PM

Six “Series A ready” health tech companies compete to be recognized as the most fundable startup. VC judges choose winners in consumer and professional-facing tracks.

Health 2.0's VentureConnect is a chance for digital health companies seeking Series A funding to pitch in front of a room of venture capitalists, government officials, and angel investors. Finalists will go on to work with expert mentors and develop their pitches, which they will present to a panel of industry leaders live on Sunday, September 16th. We're starting the judging end of this week, where our panel of virtual judges will select the finalists pitching at the fall conference. We're hoping to have the finalists by mid-August. The finalists will be competing in either the consumer-facing tack or the professional-facing track. In the end, we'll have two winners from each of the track.​

For the past few years VentureConnect, previously Traction, has been a successful part of the Health 2.0 conference in showcasing the most innovative health tech startup pitches and connecting them to venture capitalists and corporate investors. Six finalists will have access to professional mentorship on their pitches, and will present at Health 2.0’s Fall Conference. Learn more here.
