MedStartr Healthcare Innovators Club

Welcome to the online home of the MedStartr Healthcare Innovators Club on Clubhouse!  Here you can find news and information on our rapidly growing club on clubhouse that is focused on healthcare innovation.  We run up to 50 events a week there and have been learning and growing fast (see event schedule below.)

Not Just Talk: MedStartr is all about driving innovation further faster in healthcare.  The goal of the myriad conversations we enable is to not only talk about innovation but to do things, to get involved, to create the future of medicine together.  To this end, we created, a crowdfunding platform designed for healthcare startups.  It isn’t just for funding but for bringing patients, care team members, partners, pilots, and investors to the table for early-stage companies, non-profits, and people with innovative ideas.  As we ramp up our first Cross Clubhouse Community Crowd Challenge (#C5), we invite all startups to post their project on MedStartr.comClick here to find and fund some of your favorite clubhouse healthcare startups today!  The platform is open to all new ideas, missions, and startups in medicine.  Click here to learn more and post your project on MedStartr to get in front of thousands of healthcare innovation enthusiasts and leaders today.

Rooms and Events: Coming to MedStartr Events is all about connecting to a crowd of like-minded people interested in driving forward change in healthcare. Patients, doctors, nurses, therapists, allied health professionals. leaders from across the industry come, ready to discuss ways to improve care. Together we can do so much more. Join us!
