Hands-on with HealthTech Startups

March 27, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Have you ever thought about working in a healthtech startup? Join us for a hands-on experience working with a real startup who is solving a critical problem in healthcare today. The goal of this interactive workshop will be to introduce students to exciting local startups by exploring the problems and stakeholders their innovations seek to address. Students will hear from 3 different startups and have the opportunity to work alongside them to identify the needs and motivations of the company’s key stakeholders. Students with the strongest analysis will receive a prize!

No life science or technology experience necessary; just the eagerness to learn!


Presented by the Big Idea Center and LifeX.
