Then What Happened?
Would you believe that six of them funded the project? This first video shows how passion trumps perfection in crowdfunding videos! Of the original “crowd” of 71, 22 shared it with thousands more and suddenly there was a groundswell of support, interviews, press, new team members, and applicants. Needless to say, Mike and Alex were enthused and kept at it, launching the private beta on the 4th of July, 2012. Since then we have learned a great deal, gotten tons of press, helped dozens of great ideas get found and funded, and developed our Crowd Challenge and Open Innovation Services to not just help Startups, but to enable great companies become even greater through innovation driven by crowd sourcing and crowd funding. In 2015 we did our first MedStartr Momentum (#MedMo15) Conference in NYC. In July 2016 we relaunched the MedStartr crowd funding platform as a Healthcare Crowd Engagement Platform – designed to facilitate and automate everything healthcare innovators need to do to get to market faster and more sustainably in healthcare.
