Save the Date: Matchpoint West 2013
By now, calendars everywhere should be blocked off September 29 – October 2 for Health 2.0’s 7th Annual Fall Conference, but don’t forget that Health 2.0’s slate of events continues beyond the conference with Matchpoint West on Thursday, October 3rd.
Matchpoint is an exclusive opportunity for health technology entrepreneurs and large organizations, payors, and investors to meet in focused one-on-one meetings to explore potential avenues for collaboration. Health 2.0 hand-selects innovative companies to meet with host companies in structured 10-15 minute meetings. Traditionally, over 500+ applications are reviewed to identify 10-15 innovative companies per host, with anywhere from 30-80 innovators being selected overall.
At our most recent Matchpoint event, Matchpoint East, 33 innovator companies took part in 82 meetings with six hosts over the course of one fantastic afternoon in Goodwin Procter’s conference rooms at The New York Times building in Manhattan.
Matchpoint East also featured an impressive agenda of workshops that were open to the public and all Matchpoint participants. The workshops covered topics relevant to young companies including partnerships and collaborations, funding, and consumer engagement.
Matchpoint West will follow a format similar to our East event, and promises to be another exciting day fueled by the energy of the Fall Conference and the undeniable buzz of 40+ startups in one place. Stay tuned for more information on the exact agenda, location, and timing of the event, but in the meantime mark your calendars for October 3rd, apply as an innovator for the opportunity to demo in focused sessions, and spread the word to fellow innovators and Health 2.0 enthusiasts!
