A new generation of businesses is betting that data-driven products can give us all an edge in healthcare. Startups that put data first aren’t just able find their product and market better—they’re also changing the ailing infrastructure of the healthcare system, upending traditional systems, and breaking down barriers to entry for patients and caregivers.

This year at Strata Rx, we’ll be inviting groundbreaking startups to show their stuff to the world. The Startup Showcase is a chance for 12 finalists to demonstrate their innovations to a packed room of investors, entrepreneurs, journalists, and potential employees. At the end of the showcase, our judges will choose a winner and a runner up, selecting those whose technology, team, and offering stand apart from the rest.

Our esteemed judges for the Strata Rx Startup Showcase are:

  • Renee DiResta, O’Reilly Alpha Tech Ventures
  • Alexis Borisy, Third Rock Ventures

The following companies have been invited to present to the Strata Rx attendees and our panel of judges on day one of the conference (October 16):

The judges will choose the Best of the Best as well as a Runner-Up, and attendees will choose an Audience Choice Award winner. These three winners will be announced from the stage the morning of Wednesday, October 17, and given 10–15 minutes of session time that afternoon to present to a seated audience and receive direct feedback.
