This event is brought to you by Sprint, Techstars, NYeC Loeb & Loeb, and MedStartr:
That's right, we are doing our Annual Pitch Contest again but this time our sponsors are Techstars and Sprint as well as the NY eHeath Collaborative.
Loeb and Loeb is back, led by Joe Daniels, doubling the prize package here to over 6,000 in cash and prizes adding in $3,000 in free legal services. Thanks Joe!
Register now, space is limited, first come first served. The event is taking place right at Techstar's amazing Accelerator space @1407 Broadway.
Over 40 companies applied to pitch and you will see the best of the best. Don't miss it!
In addition to meetings with investors, being in the center ring of our planned livecast and media circus that generally results in millions of twitter impressions and good press, you will also win a prize package usually valued at over 5K. We are crowdfunding the prize with the ticket sales, corporate, media, and investor sponsors as usual, so stay tuned to see how much the community will support. To contribute to the prize please contact Anthony Manson ([masked]), our VP of Business Development. This year, as a little extra boost to the competition online and off, we are asking all finalists to set up campaigns on MedStartr.com (http://medstartr.com) to show how much traction they can get before, during, and after the pitch event. In our last Challenge contestants raised over 51K that way, more than tripling the prize!
So how are YOU going to transform healthcare?
It should be awesome so get your seat.
Techstars is a mentorship-driven seed stage investment program. They run a three month long program in Austin, Boston, Boulder, San Antonio, Chicago, London, Seattle, and right here in NYC.
Sprint, with a rich history as a leading-edge technology company, is supporting Techstars accelerator initiative as a way of driving innovation at a transformational time in health care.
We have invited some of the top investors in healthcare to be our Shark Tank judges. In the past we have had Esther Dyson and Owen Davis, Todd Petri, and Charles Huang. For starters here we have Judges: John Fein from Techstars and Doug Dresslaer from Sprint. The online crowd and event attendees always get a vote too. The panel is still assembling so if you are a serious investor in the space, please reach out to Adam Griff to be a judge. ([masked])
