Back by popular demand, we are doing Dance Dance Healthcare Revolution AGAIN! Come dance the night away with the Healthcare Innovation Crowd in NYC! True to our Healthcare Revolutionary roots, we will also host brief startup pitches and portfolio company demos. That's Awesome Right!?! BUT Wait - There's more! This is also a 50th Birthday party for Alex! "Who is Alex?", you ask? Alex Fair has been bringing the Health 2.0 Community together here since 2010 with over 180 events and countless newsletters. He started MedStartr.com in 2012 and running healthcare innovation contests and Open Innovation programs for HHS, AMA, AHA, Takeda, New Orleans, HP, J&J, AMIA,... in 2013. Finally, after helping hundreds of companies get formed, found and funded faster he opened his first venture fund in 2017 and his second in 2019. MedStartr now underwrites all the events and our staff and our portfolio startup founders like the amazing Avish Nessavier (https://www.linkedin.com/in/avishanessaiver/) of Biyra Biotech help make all the magic happen in the group. As anyone who knows Alex (as most of your do) knows, his favorite thing is seeing the best new ideas in healthcare, so we will also have a giant pitch contest! He and his team are also looking to deploy another million dollars in investor capital and 2 million in prizes this Fall, so do well in the pitch contest and you can grow very fast with the help of the Local H2NYC and the global MedStartr community.

At our first Healthcare Revolution Dance party the 27 teams that pitched went on to raise over 400 million dollars in the next year and included Misfit Wearbles, Avado, CareSet and more, so do not delay, apply today! What your entrance fee gets you: In addition to a great time with a ton of other folks interested in healthcare innovation, your ticket price also covers the cost of Drinks, Snacks, Music, Dancing, pitches and more! You can BYOB as well. Not sure if we will do Jello Shots again, probably a terrible idea (again.) Big thanks to our members and co-organizers who inspired and enabled this event and this group for the last decade! Space is limited so reserve your spot today!
