Investor Speed Dating

Are you a capital-seeking startup? Register to connect with investors at the MedHealth Summit!
Registration for Investor Speed Dating will close on March 15, 2019.

Exchanging business cards

A limited number of medical device or digital health startups will have the opportunity to participate in a speed dating–style session with angel and venture capital fund representatives at the summit. Company representatives who want to participate are required to preregister for the summit and answer five simple questions about their business. Please note that only one person per company is allowed to participate in this component of the event. Confirmed investor participants include Baird, Bloom Burton, Great Lakes Angels Fund, Invest Detroit Ventures, Invest Michigan, Sam Circle, Tamarind Hill, Wavemaker Three-Sixty Health, and Windsor Essex Capital Angel Network. More investors will be added in the weeks ahead!

Registration for Investor Speed Dating will close on March 15, 2019, or when maximum capacity is reached. All registered startups will have anywhere from one to eight meetings, with schedules provided at the summit.

How Investor Speed Dating Works

You will have five minutes to pitch your startup for each scheduled investor meeting. In the first two minutes, explain the most important parts of your technology, including the problem your technology solves, your competitive advantage, how your business makes money, and what resources and capital you are seeking. Save the last three minutes for questions and answers. At the five-minute mark, you will hear a buzzer that signals it’s time to either attend your next scheduled meeting or exit the speed dating area.

Market-Ready Matchmaking

Applications are now closed.

As you know, health systems and healthcare organizations are always seeking innovative medical devices and digital health solutions that help consumers, caregivers, healthcare providers, and supporting institutions gain information about patients’ health status. In turn, this drives appropriate utilization of healthcare services and improved healthcare options. Unfortunately, these stakeholders do not always know where to look.

Interested in exploring codevelopment, clinical validation, and/or pilot opportunities? The MedHealth Summit is connecting healthcare organizations and research institutions with market-ready digital health and medical device companies that have innovative technologies to address their challenges. Confirmed host organizations include applied Medical Device InstituteAuthority Health, Beaumont Health, Henry Ford Health System, MATTER HealthPriority HealthProMedica, ResearchOne at Wayne State UniversitySamaritasTransForm Shared Service Organization, the University of Michigan–FlintVentureWell, and Windsor Regional Hospital.
