EXPERT SPEAKERS, PANELISTS, AND JUDGES

Building Momentum in healthcare innovation is all about the crowd that cares about what you are doing. To succeed you must gain the support of five key stakeholders: Patients, Providers, Partners, Institutional leaders, and Investors. Our Panels, Judges, and Speakers are that crowd and are looking for the best new ideas to support. These folks have made the magic happen many times and are ready to do it again. Want to get involved with the best new companies in healthcare?
