StartUp Health — December 3, 2019
Founders of 20+ startups working to make healthcare affordable set to attend the 2020 StartUp Health Festival in January
About 800 million people spend at least 10% of their household budgets on medical expenses, according to a 2017 report by the World Bank and WHO. That’s expensive enough to send 100 million people into extreme poverty. Mobile technology internet connectivity are flipping the cost of care paradigm. Telemedicine has dramatically lowered provider overhead. New population health startups are upgrading the way patients battle chronic illnesses, slashing costs.
At StartUp Health, we’re on a moonshot mission to take costs from poverty-inducing all the way to zero. In January, a number of Health Transformers from our portfolio of startups who are committed to making healthcare affordable will convene with 2,000 other entrepreneurs, innovators, top investors and world leaders in San Francisco for the 2020 StartUp Health Festival. While their missions are diverse, they are united under the StartUp Health Cost to Zero Health Moonshot. They are committed to dismantling our understanding of healthcare as we know it, and rebuilding the machine from the ground-up.
Meet them at the StartUp Health Festival Jan 13–14 (apply to attend), or catch them on StartUp Health TV via startuphealth.com where we’ll be live streaming the event.
