Announcing the Digital Health Breakthrough Network

NYCEDC expands Digital Health Portfolio with new HITLAB partnership

Early-stage health tech startups in New York City are getting a leg up.

Starting today, NYCEDC and HITLAB are accepting applications from pre-revenue and pre-Series A health tech startups for the Digital Health Breakthrough Network.

Invite Startups to Apply:

In the Network, startups will have their health technologies stressed, tested, and validated in rigorous pilot studies designed to help them scale or pivot their technologies as fast as possible.

Pilot design will be led by HITLAB and carried out in collaboration with dozens of Network Members such as clinics, pharmacies, and doctors’ offices, which represent every sector of the health industry and come from all five boroughs of New York City.

Join as a Network Member:

In addition to Members, the Network is supported by an Advisory Board comprising healthcare leaders from New York’s premier health institutions. Advisors generously provide guidance to ensure pilots produce robust and useful insights.

Each Advisor is to be commended for their professional contributions and their commitment to New York City's leadership in digital health.

Startups will be selected in Batches of up to four technologies, twice annually.

Applications for the Spring 2016 Batch will be accepted until March 31, 2016, and Batch selections will be announced May 2016.

New York City’s cultural and economic diversity makes it the largest market for meaningful healthcare solutions in the country.

NYCEDC and HITLAB are excited to launch this innovative model to help startups generate meaningful data, validate prototypes, and attract early clients and investors as they grow.

As a collaborative effort, the Network will spur innovation in New York City’s healthcare industry, create jobs for the half-a-million-and-growing healthcare workers in the City, and advance technologies that meet the health needs of New Yorkers and people around the world.
