In response to highly successful events over the past five years, Insight Product Development, MATTER, and PROPEL – iBIO Institute are co-hosting the sixth annual HealthTECH Startup Competition on Thursday, November 8, 2018. This year our team of jurors will select ten leading early stage medical device and digital health startup finalists from the Midwest to compete for $50,000 in cash and prizes.

First-round startup competitors will be selected by a judging panel of leaders from global corporations, academia, investors, and community health organizations to narrow the field down to twenty top teams. The second round of vetting and review will identify the finalists that will present live in November at the HealthTECH Competition. On the merit of their live pitches, jurors will select the top three startups for cash and prize awards at the event.
