Rock Health Announces 100K Investment for Startups Accepted to Fourth Class

Rock Health, the non-profit digital health startup incubator, has just sweetened the deal for applicants to  their already competitive fourth class.

Each startup will now receive a $100,000 investment made possible by Kleiner-Perkins Caufield and Byers alongside longtime supporters Aberdare Ventures, Mohr Davidow, and the Mayo Clinic.

Perhaps this will intensify the migration of skilled techies to solving major problems in healthcare? Applications are available here.

    Hi,

    This is a great opportunity. I chair the Mobile Technology Consortium working with entrepreneurs and Universities. Can you provide what type of problems are they looking to solve?

    Thank you…………………..Jaime

    Thanks for the comment Jaime.To my knowledge they consider anything novel solving a meaningful problem with a solid business plan and team, though they did author a post recently on the specific types of problems they would like to fund: http://rockhealth.com/2012/08/ideas-wed-like-to-fund/
