About this Event
The 2021 MedStartr Momentum ReOpen The World Tour (#MedMo) Join us!
After adapting to the pandemic last year, we decided it was wise to cancel all our in-person events and go completely virtual. First, by running our signature pitch contest through zoom and live streaming it to thousands of viewers. Then we started the MedStartr Healthcare Innovators Club on clubhouse where it quickly became one of the largest communities on the app. We have run over 500 events there this year, ranging in topic from Alzheimer's innovations to Vaccines. It's been a fantastic new way to meet tens of thousands of startups, investors, healthcare leaders and patient activists like yourselves and we have seen many of you there already. But after a year and a half of these virtual events and being vaccinated we decided to Reopen MedMo's World Tour!
IRL and Virtual Together
We will livestream the event as usual via Zoom and host a clubhouse discussion as well. Since it costs less to do virtual, if you want to participate through Zoom, please purchase the ticket. This allows people to engage with the MedStartr team and panelists during the event, ask questions, post comments and more. People on clubhouse (MedStartr.club) and watching the livestream can attend for free, as always. Being in the room is much better, but after piloting the triple platform event at our Kickoff in Chicago, we have to say it was pretty great and will keep doing it!
Everyone is a Pitch Contest Judge!
We believe that when we connect, we will collaborate and create the future of healthcare better, faster, and in more ways than alone. We also think the wisdom of crowds of healthcare enthusiasts are better at judging than just a few people. For this reason we ask everyone to help judge. You can do it here: bit.ly/mmjudge

Proof of vaccination should be sent in advance to [email protected] Masks and COVID tests (which we will have at the door) wil be required for the unvaccinated.

Why we are doing this? Who are you people?
This event is brought to you by MedStartr Ventures, our VC fund that invests in and accelerates the best new companies in healthcare. Based in NYC, we know not all the best ideas are in New York so we travel around the world looking for them! We call this the MedStartr Momentum World Tour, or just #MedMo for short. The team that created MedStartr.VC grew out of the Health 2.0 NYC community in New York and also created MedStartr.com. To learn more or to get involved please engage us on social media at @MedStartr or @alexbfair everywhere or call 530.MED.STAR anytime.
More about the MedStartr Ventures Acceleration Program:
Winning teams will be evaluated for inclusion in the MedStartr Acceleration Program which initially provides over $350,000 in funding and services including three years of support from the MedStartr Ventures team and Mentor network. MedStartr is no ordinary accelerator though. We select companies that are obtaining support from patients, providers, partners, institutions and investors and then accelerate them with services and introductions critical to startups in healthcare.
Why Pitch? What is all this about Momentum?
Pitching at a MedMo event helps get all companies the momentum they need to succeed in healthcare. MedStartr was started as a passion project to help as many innovations and entrepreneurs as possible and we remain true to that mission. Healthcare has changed in many ways in the 13 years since we started but there is more to do. Join us and help evolve medicine until we all can live longer, better lives!
Up to ten teams will be selected. Please Apply here to Pitch if you would like to be among them
