Top health tech VCs are investing heavily in technologies that encourage healthy behavior and habits around sleep, nutrition, exercise, mindfulness. At #splashxinventhealth Vitality: Lifestyle as a Drug we discussed what new technologies are on the horizon. What are the new data being surfaced up to drive calls-to-action and what are the investment theses in this area?

Archana Dubey (Global Medical Director, HP) and Bambi Francisco Roizen (Founder and CEO, Vator) moderated the discussion. Panelists are Ariel Poler (Angel Investor), Will Quist (Partner, Slow Ventures), Jake Chapman (Managing Partner, Alpha Bridge Ventures) and Josh Stevens (Entrepreneur in Residence, Crosslink Capital)

Thanks to HP and Vator for hosting the event. Thanks to HP for being the main sponsor and thanks to our other sponsors: Avison YoungAdvsrStratpoint and Scrubbed
