Welcome to the online home of the MedStartr Healthcare Innovators Club on Clubhouse! Back during the high pandemic days of 2021 we extended our community into the Clubhouse platform and did over 800 events there. It rapidly grew to over 18,000 members with 130 MedStartr Moderators. Clubhouse has since become rather devoid of healthcare content and we wound down our club activities, but it is a great platform for conversations when in-person events aren’t available. We supported or ran up to 50 events a week there and may go back for different programs. Below you can see our old show schedule to give an idea of our regular shows focused on many areas of healthcare innovation.
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 MedStartr.com, 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.com. Click 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 (2021): 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!

Moderator Training: Part of building such strong programming was training new moderators and building a community of “MedMods”, to which end we conducted and recorded shows monthly as well as a well-developed backchannel with over 100 healthcare innovation enthusiasts such as ourselves. You can read our Moderator Training and Tips here (Alex’s detailed version) or here (Roland DaSilva’s more summarized version.) or the video
