Ahead of the weekend, mHealthWatch learned that StartUp Health, which is “organizing and supporting a global army of Health Transformers,” has a new supporting member.
Accenture, one of the world’s leading professional services companies, has joined the exclusive StartUp Health Network.
This builds on momentum from the HealthTech Innovation Challenge that was hosted at the StartUp Health Festival in San Francisco in January 2017.
The StartUp Health Network connects Accenture leaders to StartUp Health’s rapidly growing global army of nearly 400 Health Transformers in more than 60 cities and spanning 18 countries on five continents. StartUp Health will work closely with Accenture to streamline the process of working with Health Transformers, digital health entrepreneurs, innovators and disruptors. Startup Health will also provide Accenture’s leaders its proprietary Transformer Mindset Coaching program and access to its StartUp Health Insights.
“We are proud to be a member of The StartUp Health Network and look forward to working together to support a new generation of Health Transformers,” said Brian Kalis, managing director of digital health at Accenture. As part of the Accenture Innovation Architecture, this new effort will provide an environment for our health clients to easily connect into a global ecosystem of digital health startups.”
