Now more than ever, the innovation community needs to work together to unlock any existing barriers in order to support the advancement of digital health solutions," says Balaji Gopalan, CEO at MedStack.
"MedStack has been a longtime supporter of The Founder Institute and we’re very excited to offer this special opportunity to cutting edge, early-stage digital health companies.
We believe that entrepreneurs can fix the world's problems, no matter how daunting or widespread the challenge may seem. The Founder Institute's mission is to empower communities of talented and motivated people to build technology businesses that positively impact the world. However, we too often watch talented entrepreneurs pursue ideas with low ambition. As the world becomes more connected and technology infiltrates the very fabric of our society, there has never been a better time for tech startups to make a difference and change the world.
Through this partnership, everyone building a Digital Health startup in Montreal can apply to the program for free ($50 value), and the most extraordinary applicants will be awarded the MedStack Digital Health Fellowship, giving them the opportunity to enrol in the program for free ($1299 value). The recipients will be recognized as someone with the utmost potential to become a successful technology entrepreneur.
