Health IT: US 2014

Village Capital launched its first health-focused program in 2014, in partnership with VentureWell. Village Capital and VentureWell supported 12 innovative Medical Devices (Class I, II), diagnostic technologies and health IT platforms that have B2B business models and address a problem, disease or medical condition that disproportionately affects rural or low-income Americans or others currently underserved by the US healthcare system.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Our award-winning curriculum provided intensive business development training, mentorship from local business leaders and investors, and face-to-face interaction with potential customers. The program aimed to have a sustainable, large-scale impact for communities, investors, and entrepreneurs in the region. At the end of the program, the entrepreneurs ranked each other and chose two companies to receive $100,000 in peer-selected investment.

Program workshops took place in Boston, Massachusetts, on:

Workshop 1: May 18-21

Workshop 2: July 9-12

Workshop 3: September 14-17
