A common challenge faced by health technology startups is access to angel funding.

This is especially true for investors with deep domain expertise in the health care industry.


Rock Health, the non profit digital health accelerator, is offering physicians and other health care professionals the opportunity to help close this gap through a new strategic angel investor program.

The program includes two evening workshops on January 31st and February 13th to help new investors learn about market trends, angel investing mechanics, deal structures, valuation, due diligence, and company sourcing. Speakers will include seasoned investors and health care luminaries such as Bob Kocher MD, Partner at Venrock and former advisor to President Obama, and Beth Seidenberg MD, Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and former Chief Medical Officer at Amgen.

Participants will also receive free passes to the Rock Health Demo Day on February 20th.

Participation is selective and by rolling application, candidates will be notified by January 4th, 2013.  All events and the evening workshops are required, and investors must meet the SEC definition of an accredited investor, including a net worth of $1 million (excluding home value), or individual or combined family income of $200K/$300K respectively for the past three years.
