“On behalf of the program, I’m honored to introduce our newest class: ALIS Health, CardioCube, Digital Medical Tech, KelaHealth, MedPilot, Nicolette, Relatable, Sopris and SureConsent.”
I’m inspired by the work I’ve seen at the accelerator in the past two months, and invigorated by what I know is coming. Since applications for this class closed in March, we have reviewed hundreds of companies, each giving us a glimpse into the future of care delivery. For every company considered for the program, we evaluate the leadership team, product concept, market fit, traction, and business model. We feel confident that we are engaging with companies who are well positioned to solve real-world problems in our industry.
“We understand the importance of helping startups develop technology that empowers the patient or healthcare professional to better track, manage and improve health and healthcare delivery,” said Darren Dworkin, Chief Information Officer of Cedars-Sinai Accelerator powered by Techstars. “We bring the expertise of leaders who are on the front lines of care every day and can provide thorough perspective to technology companies who are making real changes in the space. Through our partnership with HLTH, we bring this collaboration to life in the Startup Pitch competition.”
At the heart of our accelerator program and our companies’ success are the mentors and the executive sponsors guiding our company co-founders as they participate in the intensive three-month bootcamp. Time and time again, when we ask our alumni about their favorite part of the program, they point to the mentors who challenge and inspire them to be the best they can be.
Learn about five different ways mentorship can add value to your startup, as told by our alumni founders:
"The highlight of HIMSS18 was seeing our Cedars-Sinai Accelerator alumni onstage in the Innovation Live Zone, alongside Darren Dworkin, CIO of Cedars-Sinai, and Dr. Rick Riggs, CMIO of Cedars-Sinai. Darren and Rick spoke with Deep6 AI, Invio Inc., and Cancer Aid, all alumni of our program, about how to successfully navigate the healthcare ecosystem. The session was honest, inspiring, and completely full."
