Okay, so healthcare doesn’t attract the same pizzazz as fashion or the fanboyish publicity often reserved for locations-based mobile apps. It is, however, one of the most fertile corners of the tech scene. If ZocDoc is anything to go by, there’s a huge market out there waiting for salvation.
Thus, it comes as no surprise that Blueprint Health from the Techstars Network is looking for a few good men and women. The accelerator program is now officially open for interested parties. It goes live on January 9 next year. The possibilities with Blueprint Health are very attractive. Not only is it incentivizing a potentially huge networking grapevine for applicants, but lots of encouraging accelerator freebies, all for the price of a little equity.
Keep in mind, however, that Blueprint Health wants innovative ‘technology products’ suited for the massive medical establishment, from doctors to hospitals.
For 6% equity, Blueprint is going to incubate and grow a healthcare-centric startup. This includes office space (three months), funding worth $20,000 and mentoring.
Oh yes, mentoring. Blueprint has tons of people to fulfil this role. According to available sources, ex-founders and entrepreneurs behind such companies as ZocDoc, Medcommons, Phreesia, etc. are available to bestow wisdom.
