Ten Health Care Entrepreneurs Pitch their Businesses to Industry Executives and Investors

Ten startups took the stage yesterday, showcasing their innovative approaches toward creating better health care outcomes to investors, sponsors, and mentors. Healthbox and its anchor partner, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA), selected these ten companies in August to participate in a rigorous three-month accelerator program based in Cambridge, MA. As part of the day, event attendees voted on which company they thought presented the most creative solution for an industry need. The company with the most votes received an additional $25,000.

The ten companies that presented their progress to hundreds of leading health care executives and investors are:
