Funding Founders Program

Matching Startup CEOs and Investors in 1:1 Meetings

Engage in the Investor/Startup Ecosystem

Funding Founders is a curated networking program matching healthcare technology startup CEOs and founders with leading investors in a series of 15-minute, 1:1 meetings. All meetings are investor driven.

Organic and Curated Conversation

HLTH’s ‘speed-dating’ format focuses on efficiency and maximizes the number of meetings for both investors and startups. With over 1,000 meetings in 2022, Funding Founders is the place to engage in investment, discussion and collaboration.

Want to Be a Part of the Funding Founders Community?

All qualified investors and startups will be able to participate in the program at no additional cost! You will have the option to sign up at the registration process for HLTH.

After opting into the program, you will need to answer a few more questions to create your matchmaking profile in the Funding Founders digital platform.


● We ask that Startups limit enrollment to one person per company. Please enroll the individual who will be taking the meetings with investors onsite.

● Meetings are investor-driven, meaning only investors can send invites to startups or fellow investors.

● Meetings are double opt-in. Once both parties accept the meeting in the platform, the meeting is scheduled.
