  • Healthtech (Payer/Provider) — Startups focusing on burnout and operational efficiency
  • Healthtech (Consumer/Employer) — Startups focusing on women’s health.

There is no fee to apply but startups who have been selected to pitch at any INVEST event in the past 12 months will not be eligible to apply for the conference in Chicago next year.

The deadline to apply is February 29, 2024. Investment professionals will review applications and finalists will be announced starting March 31.
