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).
An overall winner will be crowned and chosen by a selection committee, out of the top six presenting live.
Applicants receive one free ticket for applying (2 tickets if applied before by January 31). Startups with more than 100 points (bonus and individual combined) get one free ticket.
PRIZES: About $25k of in-kind prizes, including for the Winner - a Surf Air one month membership for 4; $10k in engineering work, courtesy Stratpoint, complimentary bookkeeping from Scrubbed; a video of your presentation; a bottle of Bread and Butter wine; an Apple iPad Mini, courtesy Health Wildcatters; Plus sit-down meetings with Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins, GE Ventures, Maveron, Canaan Partners, McKesson Ventures, Xfund, Vator Investment Club, DFJ, Subtraction Capital, advsr.fund, Maven.

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
A Winner and Runner Up will be selected by judges to win sit down meetings with top VCs from Maveron, Canaan Partners, Subtraction Capital, XFund, Kleiner Perkins, Efficient Capacity and more. Plus a video of your presentation and a round-trip flight on Surf Air.
