Announcing the first ever Hacking Medicine Post Hack Pitchfest!
Come root for the best startups selected from 15 hackathons as they pitch to a judging panel of payers, providers, and investors to compete for the chance to join the stage at Stanford MedicineX!
Hacking Medicine Hackathons like Healthcare’s Grand Hackfest bring talented people together to solve real world problems in health care. But after the hackathon, these nascent teams often struggle to get to the next step, whether it’s to keep the team focused, secure pilots with industry customers, or get early investments.
To fill this gap in support of health care innovation, Hacking Medicine, careinnovators, and Boston Young Healthcare Professionals are co-organizing a new event called the Post Hack Pitchfest on June 19th from 6-9PM! The event is designed to give hackathon teams an opportunity to make progress on their business before pitching again to industry leaders, investors, and customers. Our goal is to help propel these companies to their next milestone. Each participant will be given 3 minutes to pitch their company to an esteemed panel to seek feedback! The winner of this event will be given the opportunity to pitch on the mainstage at Stanford MedicineX in September. This event is part of the Boston Idea Week event series.
