Larkspur, Calif. (PRWEB) October 08, 2012
Seasoned health care executives today launch Health Tech Hatch (HTH), a seed-funding and development resource for entrepreneurs creating innovative health and wellness products and companies. Focused on health care and wellness, HTH creates a synergy among a crowdfunding model, concept and prototype testing and expert mentorship. Its leadership team, founding members of the National Crowdfunding Association, have significant experience in health care and science, and a commitment to posting quality projects while always conducting business with integrity.
HTH’s platform supports health care innovators by providing crowdfunding, clinical and usability testing and rating of concepts and prototypes, along with marketing support to help entrepreneurs succeed in attracting funding. The combination of crowdfunding and the power of social media helps to raise funds not only from family and friends, but also from their families and friends on down the line. A computer or mobile device, and an interest in supporting health care innovation, are all that are needed to get involved.
“What differentiates Health Tech Hatch from other crowdfunding sites is our sole focus on health care projects, which we combine with expert feedback and mentorship,” says Patricia Salber, CEO of Health Tech Hatch. “We’ve made it our mission to help young health and health tech companies build a viable nest for the brilliant ideas they are ready to hatch.”
Depending on the nature of their innovative ideas, entrepreneurs may opt to have projects evaluated by panels of medical experts, patients, wellness consumers and providers, such as physical therapists, fitness trainers and nutritionists convened by Health Tech Hatch. The Senior Healthcare executives on the Health Tech Hatch team also provide feedback to the entrepreneur and offer advice and services to help grow a business.
If you’re attending Health 2.0 San Francisco October 7-11, 2012, stop by our booth (#38) or come see Salber as a panelist for the session, “The New Bankroll: Novel Mechanisms to Fund a Health 2.0 Startup,” on October 8 at 12:20 pm at Imperial B.
