We believe drivers of change come from new ideas and new startups! And we believe today's startups are driving the digital revolution that will create better health care for the future.
We're looking for startups building products and services that are helping to make consumers become the CEOs of their own health or assist care providers in caring for their patients remotely, or revamping the way healthcare is being paid for, and generally technology that's helping to make sense of the massive amounts of data emerging.
Apply for the opportunity to get in front of top-notch VCs, angel and corporate investors and high-tech influencers. The top 6-8 startups from this online competition will present on stage at the very first Splash Health event on March 23.
*We prefer startups that are seed-stage (have raised no more than
$3-$4 million in funding).
Semi-finalists (10-15 roughly) will be invited to present between 8 and 9 am the day of for 2 presenting spots during the day of the competition.
An overall winner will be crowned and chosen by a selection committee, out of the top 6-8 presenting live.
Applicants receive one free ticket for applying.
PRIZES: About $25k of in-kind prizes, a video of your presentation; a bottle of Bread and Butter wine, more TBD; plus sit-down meetings with at least 10 health tech VCs.

Why focus on health? Healthcare is changing as we know it, largely due to the massive amounts of data becoming available to analyze, and new 3D printing technologies that may soon print out medicines, prosthetics and maybe even human organs. How we care for our health will look dramatically different in a few decades.
The Vator community and its Splash event provided the perfect launch pad to generate exposure for our health marketplace which connects consumers directly with providers who treat patients through traditional or alternative medicine. Winning the Vator Splash 2013 competition in San Francisco gave us the exposure, quality venture capital meetings and network effect every startup needs to initiate and complete a successful round. The very next quarter, we raised $4 million in our Series A. Thanks Vator!" Lisa Maki, CEO and founder of Pokitdok
