Details

Health Wildcatters is one of the top 20 startup accelerators in the country. The secret to their success is their 12-week mentor-driven program that focuses on improving healthcare by supporting entrepreneurs and healthcare startups that are developing innovative solutions. The program offers health-focused startups in the early stages of funding an initial seed investment, as well as access to mentors, advisers, office space, and strategic resources in order to help them grow and thrive. At the end of the 12-week “boot-camp” the startups are put to the test as they pitch their ideas in-front of 500 industry members and investors. Health Wildcatter’s “graduates” have secured MILLIONS of dollars in seed funding.
