Techstars Startup Weekends are 54-hour events designed to provide superior experiential education for technical and non-technical entrepreneurs. Beginning with Friday night pitches and continuing through brainstorming, business plan development, and basic prototype creation, Techstars Startup Weekends culminate in Sunday night demos and presentations. Participants create working startups during the event and are able to collaborate with like-minded individuals outside of their daily networks. All teams hear talks by industry leaders and receive valuable feedback from local entrepreneurs. The weekend is centered around action, innovation, and education. Whether you are looking for feedback on an idea, a co-founder, specific skill sets, or a team to help you execute, Techstars Startup Weekends are the perfect environment in which to test your idea and take the first steps towards launching your own startup.

It’s a challenge breaking into the U.S. market. Competition is intense in crowded markets and VC over funding hasn’t helped. Pilot deals are made without viable business models that destroy LTCV. Market access can be restricted by pay to play incubators, particularly tie-ups between VCs and providers. Who is the payer? It’s hard to follow the money and make a customer business case in the U.S. with its different reimbursement and business models. The regulatory path is also different. Then you have the traditional challenges of solution launches that lack product market fit, localization, and need for proof points, clinical evidence and customer validation.

To help address some of the challenges mentioned above, ventureLAB has teamed up with VenAdvisory to bring you a working, collaborative session where they will offer real-world, practical tools, frameworks and tips for commercializing digital health solution in U.S. markets. They will wear their product manager, business development and investor hats to cover the following topics during their presentation:

  • Snapshot of U.S. Market
    a) Providers
    b) Payers
    c) HCIT & Service Vendors (channel)
    d) Considerations
  • Playbook: U.S. GTM Case Study
    a) Commercialization Framework
    b) Key Questions
    c) Process
    d) Considerations
  • What NOT to Do
    a) Common Traps
    b) Adding more sales staff for untested markets increases your SaaS Cash Flow Trough
  • Panel Discussion
    a) Other Experiences Q&A
