“MINNEAPOLIS, MN. March 28, 2016 — For the first time, MobCon Digital Health, scheduled for April 26, will host a Startup Showcase providing a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to interact with investors, directors and C-level healthcare leadership.”
The showcase will be held in an area of the exhibit hall where representatives from each participating startup can demo and meet with potential customers and VCs. Seven venture capital firms were in attendance at MCDH last year. Companies attending this year include 3M, HealthPartners, Medtronic, Clinton Foundation, Mayo Clinic along with many others.
Unlike larger conferences drawing thousands of attendees, the format for MobCon Digital Health is more intimate – registration is limited to 500 in order to facilitate the ability to forge meaningful connections with top national and local healthcare brands.
Participants in the inaugural Startup Showcase so far include:
+ Sansoro Health, winner of the 2016 HIMSS Venture+Forum — Specializes in large scale EMR integration
+ MyBivy, winner of MobDemo 2015 — Specializes in providing restful sleep for users with PTSD through a wearable and companion app
+ POPS! Diabetes Care — Specializes in self-managed diabetes maintenance enabled by mHealth
