One of the greatest benefits of doing a project on MedStartr is getting access to the MedStartr Mentor crowd of expert patients, leading physicians, journalists, marketing leaders, innovation partners, early adopters, accredited investors, and thought leaders in healthcare.  In a partner-driven industry, getting feedback and adoption is harder than creating amazing products.  Our incredible MedStartr Mentors have enabled dozens of MedStartr to drive innovation in healthcare faster and better than ever.  Thank you to our mentors, You Guys Rock!
