LOS ANGELES – A second class of health-tech startups in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator powered by Techstars program is off and running in an intensive three-month session designed to rapidly develop innovations and products that can transform the delivery of health care.
“We’re excited to pair these bright, motivated entrepreneurs with health care experts from Cedars-Sinai who together can rapidly accelerate the pace of innovation and transform health care in meaningful ways for our patients,” said Darren Dworkin, senior vice president and chief information officer at Cedars-Sinai, in a statement.
The startups will receive mentoring from Cedars-Sinai physicians and executives, as well as $120,00 in seed money to cultivate health-related ideas and inventions in artificial intelligence, mobile health, health care financing, wearable devices and more. They will also have access to Techstars’ network of entrepreneurs and corporate partners.
Eight startups were chosen for this year’s class from a field of 650. This round’s accelerator class includes: Cerebro Solutions, FIGS, Frame Health, Healthcare TTU, HealthTensor, Noteworth, ReferralMD and Enso.
Graduates of the first Accelerators class have raised more than $11 million in investments since graduating last spring.
