Healthcare IT has become a new priority for East Coast accelerator DreamIt Ventures with the hire of a veteran angel investor group director.
Karen Griffith Gryga recently joined the accelerator’s Philadelphia office. Earlier this year it added a minority-led business component and started a program to work with startups based in Israel.
She has worked as executive director of Mid-Atlantic Angel Group, which has invested in life science and technology companies.
Although DreamIt has not shied away from healthcare startups in the past, with telemedicine company 1DocWay among the graduates of its New York class last year, it seems like it’s making a more concerted move into the space.
She spoke to MedCity News after taking part in an investor panel discussion at the MedCity CONVERGE conference. She talked about the move, how she’ll utilize her angel investor experience in the new role and the kind of investment opportunities she sees in healthcare.
