Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) and the law firm of Jones Day are pleased to co-host the third annual Telemedicine Investor and Strategic Summit on Monday, May 4, 2015, in Los Angeles. Held in conjunction with the ATA 2015 Annual Meeting and Trade Show, the summit will provide educational panels from industry experts, structured networking, and strategic collaboration opportunities for emerging telemedicine, telehealth, and mHealth companies and established private equity companies, venture investors, and strategic partners.
“While telemedicine has been around for decades, emerging companies in the space are at the forefront of healthcare technology,” said Jonathan Linkous, CEO of ATA. “This summit will connect the new players in the space with established investors to launch their products and services into the market.”
The Summit will offer three components:
- An invitation-only round-table session to take place in the morning for selected later-stage emerging companies and invited mentors (representing various private equity, strategic, and other industry stakeholders) to discuss shared experiences and industry hurdles while forming strategic relationships;
- A “Shark Tank” style series of lightning-round presentations by start-ups during the afternoon portion of the event; and
- A series of educational panels and keynotes by industry experts covering current industry trends, hurdles faced by emerging companies specific to this sector, and lessons from venture and strategic partners.
Companies in all stages of growth and development—including early-stage—are encouraged to apply for participation in the Summit.
