We want to give the thinkers, staff and leaders of the Upstate New York healthcare scene a place to meet and discuss ways to innovate. By putting us all together in one place, we will create the future of healthcare and make Upstate New York a world leader in healthcare innovation.
We are always looking for start-ups and individuals to present the ideas or products they are passionate about. Please be welcome to join the conversation, propose a topic, or suggest an alternative format. We are a largely user-driven group, so suggest a topic and we will do the most popular event. We also enable more established companies to get their message out to the healthcare innovation community through sponsorship and speaking. So if there is an event, challenge, or product release you would like to talk about, please contact us.
Thanks for visiting, we hope to see you soon!
