Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
Eight tech-based, diverse healthcare start-up companies from Milwaukee, Madison, Minnesota and Chicago, will present 5 minute elevator pitches to healthcare chief information officers (CIO), investors and healthcare leaders at Start Me Up” the Emerging Healthcare Technology Day (http://www.startuphit.com) as part of the 11th annual Digital Healthcare Conference June 10-12 at the Fluno Center for Executive Education.
The biggest challenge faced by early stage health IT companies is getting in front of decision-makers, said Jonathan Baran, founder and CEO of healthfinch. Start Me Up is a win-win for both start-ups and decision-makers. Start-ups get access to a large number of decision-makers in a small period of time. Decision-makers get access to vetted companies that drive innovation to their organizations.
An independent advisory board of physicians, investors and healthcare executives selected the eight showcase companies. WTN Media produces the conference in conjunction with WTN News. These entrepreneurs will showcase how their firms technologies improve healthcare delivery, quality and patient safety. Healthcare leaders will also hear from CIO’s regarding how best to approach start-ups for pilot projects.
Dan Wilson, an entrepreneur and co-founder of Moxe Health, said, The region is primed to be a leader in health tech innovation and partnering with WTN Media to host the inaugural Start Me Up event provides a phenomenal opportunity to spotlight some of the most promising early-stage companies in the Midwest. We’re excited to continue partnering with industry leaders to advance the health start-up ecosystem in Wisconsin and beyond. This is just the beginning!
