Social Health Startup Bootcamp: Investing in Health

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Investments in digital health startups have grown from almost one billion with 139 deals in 2010 to over almost 3 billion with 578 deals in 2013. As more investors begin to view health tech as a viable opportunity for funding and investment – especially as digital health becomes more mainstream through wearables and organic mobile platforms like Apple's Health Kit, Google Fit and Samsung's Digital Health Initiative -- it should come as no surprise that 2014 turned out to be another record-breaking year, with investments totaling over $4.1B, which is more than 2011-2013 combined. Join us for the 4th consecutive year of the Social Health Startup Bootcamp as we discuss the state of digital health funding in 2014, the factors that drove investments, deals, funding stages, investors, startups, most active markets/categories, and where future opportunities may lie.
