Wanted: mHealth Startups Seeking VC And Vice Versa

Mary Mosquera | Government Health IT | December 2, 2013

What with so many new regulations and payment reforms driving investment in healthcare innovations, it’s not always easy for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to find each other. Yet, huge market opportunities are opening up in health IT — and perhaps nowhere more so than in mobile technologies.

Looking to bridge that gap, venture investors will discuss trends in healthcare funding and strategies to attract investors and partners during the session, “mHealth Venture Trends: What investors are funding and why?” on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 2:30 p.m., at the HIMSS Media mHealth Summit 2013 taking place in the Washington, DC area.

Consumers will drive what mobile tools, apps and content are the next must-haves rather than what was already seen in the non-mobile world over the last 15 years — investors driving what consumers get to use, according to Amy Millman, president, Washington, DC-based Springboard Enterprises, one of the session presenters.
