Due to the high mortality rate associated with diabetes and COVID in underserved populations, this year's event will focus on how health technology equity and how it is enabling care for people living with vulnerable conditions.
The Leaders Forum begins with a Meet the HealthTech Showcase Exhibitors networking event with ~60 HealthTech startups conducting their virtual pitches of their technology or innovation from 10-12pm at the San Mateo Marriott in Silicon Valley. The focus of this session is to allow investors and sponsors to interact with the ~60 companies who have applied for the showcase. This interaction adds value to both start-up company exhibitors as well as investors and sponsors. The companies are seeking investment and buzz, and the sponsors are looking for new clients.
Join us from 12:00-1:30pm PT for our luncheon and mainstage program. 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 innovative start-up of the day. The Leaders Forum, Innovative HealthTech Competition winner will receive $10,000 in seed funding as well as various accolades.
