Here you will find scores of videos from our past events and the live feed from current live ones. We have livestreamed almost all our events since 2010 because we know not everyone can make it to wherever we are holding an in-person event and we are all about connecting crowds to our startups and important panel discussions. MedStartr events are somewhat like that TV show Shark Tank but here the sharks are key healthcare stakeholders that are ready to partner, invest, adopt, mentor and try the medical innovations being presented. We always include audience participation and voting in the form of questionnaires that help determine who wins. Online audiences can also follow all the action under the #MedMo hashtag and others. All this is to help teams gain what we call MedStartr Momentum, or MedMo, which is what teams get when they do well on our platforms and stages and when they win our contests. Momentum is critical for startups, especially in healthcare.

Thank you also to our crowd of friends and collaborators on social media that help spread the word around the world quicker – folks like Colin Hung and Joe Babian of #HCLDR, Regina Holliday of #TheWalkingGallery, @ePatientDavedeBronkart, Aline Noizet, Eugene Borukhovich, Gregg Masters, Paulo Machado, Wen Dombrowski, Grace Cordovano, Casey Quinlan, and so many more! Without the support of our NYC, NOLA, and Global Communities and a massive crowd of mentors, leaders and supporters, none of this would work, so we are very grateful.

With Dr. Ron Razmi, Matt Gang, and Matt Zachary, as well as help from the crowd, Alex also leads a disuccion on innovation for impact.
Las Vegas was the last stop on the 2022 MedStartr Momentum (#MedMo) World Tour. We had seven great teams on stage out of a field of over 300 applicants. We did not declare winners because to get to the stage all the teams went through reviews by over 40 MedStartr Mentors as well as a due diligence process that was rigorous. What the teams were really competing against was the inertia of the healthcare system and in that sense they all won, as many great conversations leading to adoption and investment started through this event and many are now portfolio companies.
Our Pitch contest at the Healthcare Innovation Conference in Baltimore, Maryland in March of 2022. Five great teams on stage. Fun fact: for only the second time in over 100 pitch contests the top three teams were all lead by female founders. Great job!
Watch the five finalists from the Good ViVEations Innovators Challenge from March 2022 at the ViVE conference in Miami, FL. Great show with patient activists and Salam the Poet (Jorry Cross) inspiring the crowd to get involved in healthcare innovation to help drive positive change. Teams pitching included Lura, Helpp.ai, Cliexa, Akenta and Patient Genie.
We are super stoked to finish our first real event in NYC in over a year. After running over 600 virtual events (no, that is not a typo!) we kicked off the #MedMo ReOpen the World Tour in Chicago two weeks ago. The Event was great, but it wasn't in our hometown, not in OUR City with our people. That is why we are so pleased to have over 100 people to come and 7 amazing startups that will knock your socks off. The Panelists including Shereese Maynard, MS, MBA, George T Mathew MD, Inderpal Chhabra MD, Sunita Parajuli, Gaurav Mehta, and Gail Zhatz are amazing as well.
