One of the most important benefits of a MedStartr crowdfunding campaign is the publicity it brings.  Driving Awareness is often the difference between success and failure for a healthcare company. Generating buzz and getting your story out there is so important to new companies and “earned press” is the most valuable of all. As long-time entrepreneurs ourselves, we know how hard it is to get your story told so we are very pleased that we have been able to help.

You can read all about our MedStartrs, our healthy competition, and us in the stories below. Please also check out our beautiful Pinterest Board, on friend us on facebook, or come along with us on  twitter.  Follow #Healthcare Crowdfunding activity with our #HCCF hashtag as well.

Press inquiries should be directed to our PR Team, engineers of amazing press waves, events, and promotions or call 530.MED.STAR (530.633.7827.)
