Innovations in Remote & Virtual Care Pitch Club

January 18, 2022

About This Event

Pitch Club is a 90 minute event with 3 innovative companies presenting about the healthcare problems they are solving. The goal of Pitch Club is to create more visibility for startups and give physicians, dentists, scientists and those interested in healthcare a chance to weigh in on the newest advancements in healthcare technology and innovation. Presenters give a 7 minute pitch about their company and then answer live Q&A from the audience. The last 30 minutes attendees can network with each other or join tables to continue the conversation with the presenters. The events are fun and informative. We are excited to host an event focused on innovation in Remote and Virtual Care.
