DC to VC 2013
What is DC to VC?
Dc to Vc is a startup showcase produced by Morgenthaler Ventures and Health 2.0. In it’s 4th year, this spectacular pitch-fest was co-located on the first day of the Health 2.0 Annual Conference on Monday, September 30, 2013 in Santa Clara from 10:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Each year we look for the best digital health and health IT startups in the U.S. Finalists present their startup ideas on stage to a packed room of health IT professionals, government officials, Venture Capitalists and Angel Investors. This year we had a bit of a twist in format, in that we put our Venture Capitalist friends to work. Modeled on the famous TV show The Voice, we assigned our 8 finalists to a VC team leader who helped champion their startup’s pitch to a panel of provider, payor and employer judges who offered real-world feedback. Check out our full team of VC Team Captains and Judges this year.
