I was at the VIVE conference in Miami last week and caught up with a number of CEOs & execs for some quickbite interviews — around 5 mins getting (I hope) to the gist of what they & their companies are up to. I am going to dribble them out this week.
Up here are Mikayla McGrath, Head of Partnerships at Force Therapeutics & Cynthia Church, Chief Strategy Officer at Xealth–they’re on together discussing their partnership. The other bite is with Cynthia Perazzo, EVP Insights, AVIA Health, who is telling us about the transformation she is seeing among American’s hospital systems. — Matthew Holt
Today we announced the 12 startup finalists for the 2012 DC to VC contest. DC to VC is a nation-wide contest to find the most promising health IT startups looking for Seed and Series A ($2-5M+) funding. An annual event started by Morgenthaler Ventures over a 3 years ago to help close the gap between what was going on in Washington D.C. (at ONC, CMS and the White House) and aligned interests in the Silicon Valley on health IT investing, the event has now grown into a large health IT startup competition. Morgenthaler Ventures got interested in this space when they invested in Practice Fusion over 3 years ago (they just invested in Doximity – see funding announcement). I joined as an Executive in Residence (EIR) in January after leaving Google Health and asked Matthew at Health 2.0 to combine forces with us to make the event even bigger–given he was our featured MC last year and will be again this year, too.
This year the application pool was overwhelming; we received over 140 applications to compete in the contest. Our pre-selection judges worked with us to narrow down the applications to the 13 finalists below who will present to a packed room of venture capitalists, angel investors, government officials and entrepreneurs on the last day of the annual Health 2.0 conference on October 10, 2012 in San Francisco, CA. Registration is open to all, so grab your seat fast as the room is getting packed!Continue reading…
