One of the strongest industries is its incredible HealthTech scene. We have a wealth of pillar companies in this space, are home to some of the nation's most reknowned university, hospital, and private research centers, and are a hotbed of entrepreneurial activity in the space. Boston's digital health industry includes not just medical devices but software innovations that are helping to reduce costs, improve care, and give health professionals better insights.
Join us for a panel discussion with founders, investors, and industry partners as they discuss opportunities for startups to continue improving wellness & healthcare. This panel will explore the areas in which Boston's health tech scene is already strong and where we can continue to grow. We'll unpack the trends, challenges, and talent gaps that need to be addressed to take Boston HealthTech to the next level.
This event is part of the Tech & Industry Trends track at Startup Boston 2018.
