Event description

Description

The digital health sector has undergone—and continues to undergo—explosive growth: From 2018–2019, investors poured an unprecedented $25B into more than 1,500 digital health deals. In 2019, 53 digital health companies were acquired, and, after a three-year IPO hiatus, several companies went public, including Livongo Health, Health Catalyst, Change Healthcare, Phreesia, Pelaton, and Progyny.

As we enter a new decade, digital health investors and founders need to ask themselves key questions: What are the most undervalued opportunities for VCs and entrepreneurs in the space? How have top VCs reshaped criteria for investing at seed, A, B, and C? And how can investors focus on both doing good while maximizing returns?

Join us on the evening of April 15th to learn from an expert panel of veteran digital health investors, who will be answering these questions and more as they explore the future of the sector, moderated by Mohanjit Jolly, Partner at Iron Pillar and MIT alum.

Food and drinks will be served during the first hour—this is a great opportunity to network with other founders, executives, innovators, and investors shaping the future of digital health.
