“The Venture Summit gives a multi-million dollar opportunity to new companies,” said Jonathan Linkous, Chief Executive Officer of ATA, “These companies are transforming the way healthcare is delivered, and this summit will enable them to establish key relationships to take their product or service to the next level.”
The ATA 2014 Telemedicine Venture Fair will feature a morning of lessons from mentors and practice pitches from up-and-coming companies to gain tips and pointers in order to warm up for the afternoon. During the afternoon, there will be a custom networking period, where companies and investors are matched based on interests to provide one-on-one time to connect. There will also be several panels of investors and experts to provide education and guidance to participants as well as non-applicant, general attendees.
“Given the variety of innovative telehealth businesses and growing interest among financial and strategic partners, we feel this Venture Summit is both a valuable opportunity for emerging companies to gain exposure and to generally plant the seeds for mutually beneficial relationships among the industry,” said Alexis Gilroy, a Partner with Jones Day.
