 Start-Up and Student Team Hub 

Pediatric healthcare start-ups will select an innovation track based upon their start-up's maturity: Early-Stage Innovation, Concept Validation, Early Commercialization and Growth Trajectory and submit an application with a short video and pitch deck. A separate Student Track is available for students currently enrolled full-time in an undergraduate or graduate program.


These submissions will be reviewed by pediatric providers and administrators, who will help select the event’s finalists and student team winners. Finalists whose start-ups offer the most promising new digital health solutions for kids will do an in-person presentation to expert judges, who decide the event’s winners.


Start-up participants will compete for a rich prize pool, including on-site pilots and software development support!


In addition, every start-up up applicant will receive free access for one year to The Lonely Entrepreneur Learning Community – a one stop shop for the knowledge, tools and support a current or aspiring entrepreneur needs to start or grow a business.
