Healthcare. $2.6 billion in annual spend. A decade behind any other industry in the use of IT. Here's your chance to do something about it.
The first ever Startup Weekend dedicated to healthcare will launch in Philadelphia June 1-3. It will be a 54 hour immersion in the startup world. You work with a team to see how far you can take an idea to validated business plan and demonstrable product in the course of a single weekend. Friday evening of June 1st is your chance to pitch the idea you've been harboring for a health or wellness app/business/solution and recruit a team of developers, designers, subject matter experts and business people. Or it might be your chance to join a compelling team. Saturday June 2nd you're guided by seasoned coaches who've been there before as your team builds out the plan, validates the business model, and constructs the app. Sunday you continue to crank as a team until 5pm when each team gets a 5 minute pitch and presentation before an all-star jury, competing for prizes and glory.
We guarantee it will be a learning and networking event unlike any other. Bring your talent and your passion, and the Startup Weekend crew makes sure you're fueled all weekend long. Early-bird tickets run through May 11th. Use discount code "PTM" to get $40 off any ticket. Register now at http://healthphl.startupweekend.org.
