Dell wants healthcare and life sciences technology startups to participate in the company’s pitch contest for a chance to present business concepts to a panel of industry leaders.
The mHealth pitch challenge is meant for companies that aim to develop software or hardware platforms for healthcare organizations, Dell says.
Entrepreneurs will have an opportunity to pitch health IT innovations such as mobile applications, analytics and cloud computing tools, clinical workflow management systems and wireless patient monitoring devices.
A series of pitch events is scheduled to occur in San Francisco, Austin, Texas and New York City this spring.
The panel of judges will include executives from Dell, Intel and healthcare companies.
Dell says the winning startup will receive company-made tablets as well as support from business mentors and coaches.
The program is a collaboration between Dell’s healthcare and life sciences unit and center for entrepreneurs.
