Health 2.0 VentureConnect
2:00pm - 3:30pm
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.
