The Westchester County Association Health Tech '15

WCA presents Face Time for Entrepreneurs

Apply to pitch at the WCA’s Health Tech ’15!

We’ll select the top applicants to pitch to a panel of hospital CMOs, CSOs, and major health tech purchasers to pitch at the WCA’s event, “Face Time for Entrepreneurs,” to be held May 19, 2015, at 5 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, New York.

One of the biggest hurdles for entrepreneurs is getting new innovative products before people who can actually decide whether or not to buy them. Now, health tech entrepreneurs, developers, and startups get to pitch their Big Ideas to the region’s leading healthcare decision makers and get constructive feedback in real time. This type of access is happening in Westchester County, where the WCA, the healthcare industry, and the business and education sectors are all collaborating to grow the region’s vibrant Innovation Economy.
