Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders for an opportunity for critical feedback. You do not need to be a designer, coder or even a seasoned healthcare professional to join; the only requirement is curiosity and effort. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!  Ideas for the weekend will impact the following verticals:

 

 Healthcare IT (ex. electronic medical records, telemedicine portals, electronic scheduling, etc.)
 Wearables (biometrics, etc.)
 Medical Devices
