You have 54 hours to redesign healthcare
No doubt, healthcare is a complex hairball. It’s entrenched with behemoths who hold onto the status quo. It’s fraught with hidden middlemen and a regulatory landscape riddled with land mines. In short, healthcare is ripe for disruption. This is where you come in. You will dream up ways to more efficiently deliver care, come up with a more ideal patient experience, and figure out how to add value beyond healthcare today. ...well, as much you and your team can do in 54 hours.
At Boulder Health Tech Startup Weekend, you’ll find a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.
Who should participate?
In short - everyone! It doesn't matter what you do or where you come from. If you're interested in entrepreneurship, Startup Weekend LI is the place for you. Startup Weekend brings together all types of people including designers, developers, creatives, business people, healthcare providers, doctors, nurses, and more.
What happens at Startup Weekend?
On Friday night, you'll pitch your own idea and/or listen to others. Everyone then votes on the most interesting ideas and form teams.
On Saturday, you'll work with top mentors and coaches to refine your idea and get customer feedback. Don't freak out when all your ideas go out the window and you're forced to pivot. That's what a real startup is like.
On Sunday, you'll learn how to create a million dollar pitch. It all comes together that night when you and your team present your work to a panel of judges including top VCs, business people, and community leaders.
While it's not required that you pitch an idea on Friday night, it's highly encouraged. Half the fun of Startup Weekend is getting out of your comfort zone and doing something that makes you a little bit nervous. Also, while you can come with friends, you’ll have the best experience if you participate in separate teams and on different ideas.
The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve has to be something completely new. It can't be something that you have already worked on. Startup Weekend is all about constant and rapid iteration and figuring out what problems customers are facing. If you already have a fully baked idea/business, you can't change quick enough and it won't be any fun for you or the other participants. But don't worry - Startup Weekend is great for current founders, too. The skills that you learn and the people that you meet at Startup Weekend can easily be applied to your current startup.
