Startup Showcase in the Sponsor Pavilion

Event Sponsor Pavilion

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.

Once again 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. You’ll also have a chance to vote on your favorite company to determine the “Audience Choice” award.
