MedCity CONVERGE has started its search for 24 of the best startups across healthcare. CONVERGE, an executive summit on July 9-10 in Philadelphia, delivers the most accurate picture of where healthcare innovation is heading because it unites all sectors in healthcare.

So the CONVERGE Startup Showcase will be no different. We’ll bring a collection of early-stage companies from across the life sciences and digital health that have unique ideas to some of the big opportunities in medicine. We’ll recognize them on MedCityNews.com, they’ll get showcase space and be able to network with 500 thought leaders across healthcare. In some cases, Startup Showcase members will participate in the panels or deliver a main-stage demonstration.

Startups can apply for free spots in the startup showcase from now through May. However, MedCityNews.com’s editorial team will begin making selections and sending out invitations as soon as March. So start applying now.

Applicants should keep in mind the following criteria:

  • Selected startups should offer a unique solution to an unmet need in the market and have evidence of traction with their idea
  • Digital health companies will have been operating for no more than 18 months with no later than A-round funding
  • Life science companies should be no later than A-round funding and/or embarked on a Phase 2 trial

Last year’s attendees included startups like Medivo, which went on to process more than a half-million lab results and get featured in Inc. Magazine, and Zeel, which is booking online appointments throughout the country and was since recognized in places from Forbes to InStyle.
