Calling all venture capitalists, founders and entrepreneurs: TechCrunch is coming to town and they want to hear from you.
The tech news outlet [virtually] rolls into the ‘Burgh on June 29 as part of its “City Spotlight” series. They kicked off in the city where the heat is on [Miami], moved to the rapidly transforming city of Detroit and now they’re heading to our part of the country where we eat, sleep and breathe innovation.
This virtual party [gathering] gives tech’s coolest and brightest entrepreneurs the chance to virtually network, hear from experts at fireside chats and participate in a “pitch feedback session.”
So, if you’re in tech, what are you waiting for?
Innovation helps produce more efficient and effective solutions every day — especially when it comes to healthcare. Major breakthroughs often stem from an environment where experimentation is not only permitted but encouraged, and grounds that allow a solution or product to thrive. But, these are not the only important factors in the innovation equation. For a great product to reach a patient, innovators need a clear pathway to spread and scale their solution.
The road from idea to commercialization is a long and winding one, and sometimes a road many unfortunately find themselves lost on. With so many great minds creating products at our region’s top-tier universities, it became imperative that Pittsburgh find a way to support innovators and provide a clear pathway to get their products to market. That’s where AlphaLab Health, Pittsburgh’s newest accelerator, comes in.
