Community – Accelerating the Health Care of Tomorrow – SW Medical


I’ve been in the innovation business for a long time
especially healthcare over 10 years now and I spend my whole 36 hours here at our
headquarters here on the twentieth floor and even though I see startups all the time
I was absolutely and I think that was the same for everyone here
It was absolutely energizing to see people that didn’t know each other 24 hours before
present a solution to a healthcare problem here with total strangers that they’ve worked on for
a day and a half so that was the most surprising I was surprised how much it pulled me in
I was just delighted it was such a great vibe So this was our first healthcare challenge
our first hackathon Lance Manning let the charge on this and we
were truly overwhelmed with the support of the community as well as the applicants We had so many that we
actually had to screen and turn some away so we’re definitely planning to do it again
Overall we had over 30 mentors and speakers We had over 150 participants, 18 teams
so it was a huge success and we’re looking forward to some of those
startups showing up but help Wildcatters or elsewhere to actually execute on those ideas Attend. Don’t be afraid. You. Join us. People were from all over the metro
area Texas and the country We expect even more so and all the next iteration
Don’t be shy, don’t worry about your background We want people to innovate
across the spectrum so we want you here We want you involved, we want you
to take care of take charge of your own health care problems by just doing it
Come iterate come up with some solutions and people will be here to
help you solve great healthcare problems
