VilCap USA: Health IT 2014
Accelerator & Investment Opportunity
Village Capital, an early-stage investor and accelerator, is seeking innovative, early-stage startups for its 2014 Healthcare Accelerator. The program will bring together 12 non-competitive startups and help them grow by facilitating extensive peer engagement and feedback, connections with mentors, connections with potential customers and partners, and exposure to investors. Village Capital and its partners have pre-committed $50,000 investments to the top 2 ventures selected by their peers — though the goal of the program is to help all 12 enterprises grow and secure investment. The accelerator is structured as three intensive 4-day workshops over 3 months with additional remote collaboration online between sessions. The program does not require relocation. It is free to apply and equity is NOT taken for participation.

According to the Commonwealth Fund, an estimated 86 million Americans were uninsured for at least part of 2012; the passage and implementation of the Affordable Care Act is estimated to provide health insurance for an estimated 40 million new Americans, yet implementation has faced challenges. The U.S. Federal Reserve calls this the ‘health-wealth’ gap: health care is the primary expenditure of low-income Americans, and making health care more accessible will provide a disproportionate benefit to the US economy.
