The Impact Pediatric Health Startup Pitch Competition is an opportunity for up-and-coming digital health and medical device startups to pitch their innovation to a panel of medical executives and investors during SXSW in Austin, TX on March 14, 2016. Supported by four top-ranked children’s hospitals in the United States, this one-of-a kind competition is a chance for startup CEOs to present how their company is solving the unique healthcare needs of babies, kids, and teens. Each selected finalist will be given approximately three minutes to pitch their startup to audience, followed by several minutes of questions from the emcee and judges panel. At the end of the event, the top companies will be announced and a cash prize will be awarded. Last year this event introduced participants to new hospital clients, to new venture capital, and to a few - a working relationship with billionaire Mark Cuban.
