Leading accelerator Techstars is launching a new program dedicated to innovation in healthcare in Los Angeles. The new Techstars Healthcare accelerator is sponsored by Cedars-Sinai, Point32Health, UCI Health, and UnitedHealthcare, and is designed for founders focused on innovative technology solutions that cut across a variety of segments in the healthcare industry. These segments include, but are not limited to patient experience, physician efficiency, access to care, mental health, women’s health, digital therapeutics, tech-enabled services, payment innovation, security, precision medicine, and beyond.
Matt Kozlov, Managing Director of Techstars Healthcare shared in an interview: “We are fortunate to be working with four of the top innovators in healthcare, especially from within the payor and provider sectors. Accordingly, we’re looking for companies who can help solve some of their biggest challenges as they seek to improve access, quality and efficiency of delivering healthcare at scale. Examples of topics we’re interested in include but are not limited to: women’s health, social determinants of health, physician efficiency, clinical trial innovation, mental health, patient experience, payment and billing innovation, digital therapeutics, pediatric care, and beyond. Most importantly, though, I’m looking for remarkably passionate founders who are deeply committed to the problem they’re solving and who are excellent at asking for and receiving help, mentorship, and feedback.”
Applications are open until Nov 30. The first cohort will officially kick-off on March 13, 2023.
