Today, physicians wanting to become members of angelMD will be able to bypass the waitlist that has been in place since launch. Additionally, they will discover a more user-centered site with an updated look and feel. The upgrade and opening of membership comes after the angelMD team has made substantive improvements based on work with investors and startups since the site went live 12 months ago.
Members can expect more seamless registration and log in procedures including integration with Doximity and LinkedIn for registration. Beyond registration, physician members will find enhanced tools that facilitate navigation of the rapidly growing directory of medical startups from around the world.
The angelMD community growth continues to accelerate with over 250 startups registered from all over the world covering a diversity of medical device, biotech and software (mhealth, digital health and health IT). Incubators, universities and physician members are primarily responsible for the accelerating referral volume.
The site update also adds a key featured home page rotation for top startups within the network. Companies earning this position will receive a custom tile showcasing their story and receive significant promotional effort during their position in the rotation. The initial companies selected are Niveus Medical, Sensulin and QxMD....each developing compelling offerings in their respective fields.
“We are excited to welcome physician investors and those interested in connecting with startups. Our team is delivering a new marketplace centered around healthcare innovation,” says Jens Francis, angelMD Co-Founder and CTO. “This site update completes the foundation. We are adding a wealth of engagement tools that transform how investors source, evaluate, invest and manage high quality investment opportunities in healthcare.
