Since we first put it on at Health 2.0 in 2008, Launch! has introduced over 45 new companies and products, including Unity Medical, Remedy Ventures, TheCarrot, and the WSJ’s 2010 top (and not just in health!) start-up company, Castlight Health. Launch! is the first time a company has demoed at a conference, and the product must either be coming out soon or have been in very limited beta to this point. This year, we’re seeing some larger better funded companies on Launch! but everyone’s had to compete to get on and there are some teeny start-ups here that you’ve never heard of that might just blow you away. It’s 10 continuous 4 minute demos, and the winner gets a main stage spot next year, not to mention bragging rights. Who wins? The audience decides. Yes you can still get one of the last few tickets (but we’ll sell out in next day or two).
Below (in alphabetical order) for the first time, we’re thrilled to announce the Launch! finalists for 2011:
Basis–There’s been lots of excitement in the Health 2.0 offices about getting hold of one of these devices. It looks like a watch but it tracks heart rate more than time. CEO Jef Holove will finally show us what they’re like.
Clarimed–CEO Nora Iluri will show us her ambitious attempt to measure devices and much more in health care and communicate the results to lots of constituencies including consumers
CareCoach–Almost everything we hear in a doctor’s office is lost by the time we get to the parking lot. But a visit to the doctor is an expensive and important time that should be captured, reviewed and shared with family. CEO Jeff Kozloff shows how CareCoach does that.Continue reading…
Healogica was one of the companies that presented at Launch! at the Health 2.0 Meets Ix conference in Boston in April. I felt that the quality of the Launch! companies as so strong that they all deserved to be featured to more than the 200 people in the room who saw it. So on the spur of the moment I offered all of them a spot on THCB to get them a little more visibility. And now there’s a flood of three minute videos headed our way.
First up is an innovative clinical trial recruitment service called Healogica. And yes it’s new (which is the point of Launch). Watch the short video below to get an idea and investigate further over at Healogica
