Connecting founders in the South directly with access to capital, contacts in Medicaid, and potential future contracts
Sopris Capital together with Adaptation Health, intend to launch the Southeast Health Innovation Tour, which will seek to connect emerging healthcare entrepreneurs (who are focused on addressing needs among vulnerable populations) directly with access to capital and contracts. Sopris Capital and Adaptation Health recognize that innovation is not only happening in coastal cities - this project hopes to connect with innovators outside major markets to better understand new emerging companies.
Innovation in healthcare is accelerating at a rapid pace and new companies, solutions, and technologies are continuously evolving in their approach and service. Last year, 727 companies received fundraising deals for a total of $13.7B and that amount is only expected to grow in 2020. This tour provides entrepreneurs looking to raise an early-stage financing round the opportunity to connect with venture capital in hopes of a future deal or term sheet. Further, this will help to identify emerging companies that provide value to insurers and State Medicaid markets and where viable, grow into direct contract development partnership opportunities.
Companies that are accepted to participate in the Innovation Tour will meet with Adaptation Health and Sopris Capital in small, semi-private investor meetings.
