Get Your Pitch On

Startup Pitch

Startups and investors play a critical role in creating health's future. At HLTH 2021, there will be several startup pitches covering different investment stages and themes. Each pitch will feature 8 of the most innovative companies in healthcare.

As in previous years, two companies will be crowned a winner at HLTH’s competitions - one crowned by our panel of investor judges and the other by crowd vote. 

This year we are also introducing themed, sponsored pitches that will help shine a spotlight on innovators across the ecosystem.

Applications are now closed. Make sure to attend live and vote for your favorite disruptors!
