SAVANNAH, Ga. (PRWEB) September 21, 2018
Corstrata announced today that it has been chosen as one of 34 Venture Atlanta Startup Showcase “companies to watch,” a group comprised of the most exciting early-stage businesses that are bringing big ideas to the next decade.
As a Venture Atlanta Startup Showcase Company, Corstrata will be spotlighted during a special networking event on October 16 where it will provide a “sneak peek” of its tech-enabled solutions and business plan and be given the opportunity to connect with investors, entrepreneurs and other technology leaders.
The 11th annual Venture Atlanta is the Southeast’s premier event for connecting technology innovation and investment capital and will take place October 16-17 in the heart of downtown Atlanta. With representation of over 140 funds and a roster of exciting speakers—including presentations from 33 of the region’s top rising star technology companies and keynotes from former NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson and Dave DeWalt, former CEO of FireEye, McAfee and Documentum—this year’s anticipated to be sold-out event is on track to be the largest and best yet.
“We are honored to be selected for Venture Atlanta’s 2018 Startup Showcase and the opportunity to showcase our innovative, mobile and digital wound care management solutions at this important event,” said Katherine Piette, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, Corstrata. “As an organization, our mission is to advance wound prevention and care across the spectrum of care by empowering home health agencies, hospice care organizations, skilled nursing facilities, inpatient rehab facilities and other healthcare providers to become wound care centers of excellence using the most effective wound care technology solutions available combined with on-demand, remote access to our board-certified wound care experts.”
The demand for wound care nurses is high, and according to a recent study conducted by Corstrata, 46% of home health nursing executives indicate they do not have access to a board-certified nurse, which creates costly challenges across the wound care delivery model. Corstrata solves this challenge by providing access to board certified wound clinicians using both live consultations with HIPAA compliant wound image technology, mobile engagement and telemedicine video to evaluate a patient’s wound and consult with the provider to recommend the most effective treatment for better outcomes, improved patient quality of life, and lower overall cost.
“For eleven years, Venture Atlanta has been connecting the Southeast’s best and brightest innovators with top-tier investors and other leaders in our technology ecosystem—helping to launch over 400 companies and secure over $2.6 billion in funding,” said Allyson Eman, executive director of Venture Atlanta. “This year, we’re thrilled to be showcasing the strongest and largest group yet of early and venture-stage companies as well as exciting startups still in the beginning stages. These companies reflect the incredible pool of talented people and continued opportunities for growth and innovation within our technology community.”
During the two-day event, over 900 expected participants and attendees will engage with regional as well as national venture capitalists, investors and other key players in the current technology landscape. The conference results in funding, national investor exposure, invaluable relationship building and mentoring by successful technology executives. Atlanta technology innovation hub, Tech Square Labs, will return as the event’s premier sponsor. Techstars will help kick off the conference on October 15 with Techstars Atlanta 2018 Demo Day in partnership with Cox Enterprises.
