“This year the selection process was more difficult than usual. JSF is used to a huge volume of applicants, but the quality and depth of the talent this year made the selection process very challenging. I can’t wait to see what these teams can build over the next 14 weeks,” said Vic Gatto, CEO of Jumpstart Foundry.
The nine teams will begin the Jumpstart Foundry program on May 17th and will work to build their products and companies during the summer months in Nashville. At the end of the program, the 2015 batch will be included in the presentations at the Health:Further conference on August 19th-20th. This will be the first time the general public will get a chance to see what the teams have been able to accomplish. Tickets to Health:Further are available at http://healthfurther.com
