On Monday, Startup Health announced that it was opening its second regional affiliate, Startup Health Colorado, in partnership with Children’s Hospital Colorado, CU Anschutz, and UCHealth. The offices of the new affiliate will be located on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, where Startup Health Colorado will work with its partners to develop and launch at least 30 health-tech startups.
On Monday night, the 14 companies participating in the semi-finals round of the 2016 Prime Health Challenge pitched their products before a panel of 25 judges. Each was given six minutes to present, followed by a four-minute question-and-answer session. By the end of the evening, six companies had been chosen to continue onto the finals round of this year’s Challenge.
Last week, something remarkable occurred. On the evening of Tuesday, August 23rd, 47 members of our health innovation ecosystem, including physicians, entrepreneurs, technologists, executives, administrators, and investors, gathered at INDUSTRY to judge the applicants of the 2016 Prime Health Challenge. It was the single largest gathering of judges in the Challenge’s three-year history.
More than 100 organizations joined forces with us this year to make the 2016 Prime Health Innovation Summit the largest gathering of its kind in Colorado’s history — and we couldn’t be more grateful.
