Having trouble convincing local angels to fund your health tech startup? Why aren't they writing you a check?! [This meetup is underwritten in part by Factor75 and The Startup Institute - learn more about them below]
Come to our meetup and learn about a series of actual investment conversations that occurred between Scott Vold, a local health tech startup co-founder, and Jordan Dolin, a serial entrepreneur and local angel investor. Jordan did not invest in Scott's startup for nearly a year, but eventually did. Why?
Scott is one half of the co-founding team behind Fibroblast, a health tech startup that automates the patient referral process to improve patient experiences, increase provider revenues, and promote population health. Fibroblast was part of the final Excelerate Labs accelerator class, now reincarnated as TechStars Chicago. Jordan Dolin met Scott through Excelerate, and became a mentor and advisor.
Post demo day, Scott was surprised that local investors weren't giving him any love... (Jordan included.)
