Founder Institute Image

The Health Tech Founder Institute, the local chapter of the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator, is proud to announce the newest Alumni from the Health Tech program.

After meticulous selection process and intense four months of aggressive business-building sprints, constant evaluation, and feedback from investors and mentors, just 4 companies were able to make it through. 

Each of these Founders have demonstrated a high level of perseverance and creativity, and their businesses have been thoroughly vetted and supported by a panel of Health Tech's top startup experts and investors.  

And now, without further ado, we present the Alumni of the Health Tech program: 

  • ChatDoc -  developing an AI Virtual Healthcare Assistant to provide personalized care and answers to health-related questions for lacking individuals using advanced AI.
  • QUEST LINQ HEALTH - Simplifing Complex Diagnosis & Treatments for Functional Medicine Providers.
  • Rx Interactive- helping people with diabetes and high blood pressure increase patient adherence through a mobile app that leverages gamification and machine learning together to improve health adherence in 4 unique areas.

The Health Tech program would not have been possible without help, because it truly takes a city to raise a startup.

Join us at Silicon Valley Founder Institute Graduation Event on July 2.
