2021 Program At A Glance

Leaders Forum was originally organized in 1995, by three prominent medical technology executives to address the societal impact of diabetes. The event grew as time went on and expanded to include a Health Technology Showcase.

The event takes advantage the unique environment of innovation in Silicon Valley by connecting early-stage start-ups with venture capitalists and advisors. The proceeds of the event benefit the American Diabetes Association.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear from three prominent thought leaders on health equity. These conversations with will occur on this platform on the following dates:

  • November 15: Health Disparity Research with Suneil Koliwad, MD,PhD, UCSF
  • November 16: Design of Inclusive and Accessible Health Technologies with Badia Boudaiffa, Abbott Diabetes Care and Red Maxwell, Bigfoot Biomedical
  • November 17: State of Health Equity in Northern California with Judy Belk, CEO, California Wellness Foundation

The Leaders Forum event culminates in-person at the San Mateo Marriott on November 19th.

The event on the 19th will commence 10am PT with a networking event entitled ‘Meet the HealthTech Showcase Exhibitors.’ The Showcase will feature approximately 50 HealthTech start-ups pitching their new products and technologies to VCs, industry and investors until 12:00 PT (noon). The focus of this session is to allow investors and sponsors to interact with the companies featured in the showcase.

The main program begins at noon. During this time, three finalists will provide a short presentation to a panel of judges and the audience. The audience will vote to select a winner for the most promising start-up of the day. The winner will receive $10,000 in seed funding as well as bragging rights.

Note: Due to COVID19, the event at the Marriott will be primarily held outdoors and will feature a slightly different luncheon format. All guests are required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test administered within 72 hours in advance of attendance. San Mateo County requires all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors, with the exception of persons who are actively eating or drinking.
