By Halle Tecco (Co-Founder & Managing Director, Rock Health) This summer, Rock Health will catalyze innovation in the interactive health space. Become one of the first startups to access our unrivaled community of experts and seed-accelerator program where a select group of health-related startups will partake in an intensive multi-month program, turning ideas into products and businesses.
Use what you’ve learned in other segments (gaming, informatics, design, etc.) to solve real, meaningful problems in health. At least one team member should be a developer. Check out the FAQ.
Rock Health will welcome a group of developers and entrepreneurs with early stage ideas to San Francisco’s newest incubator, focused on health apps. Startups will receive a grant for $20,000 along with operational and strategic support, office space, and mentorship from a team of experts in tech, design, legal/IP/FDA, devices, consumer healthcare, clinical medicine and business.
The Rock Health mission is to enable and empower an entrepreneurial cure for the relative lack of innovation in the health sector. The world of patient care and healthy living is foreign to the technological creativity found in social media, games and other verticals. Rock Health directly targets the gap between these ecosystems, enabling high-impact innovation. Learn more at www.rockhealth.com.
