OHSU Invent-a-thon Post-Hack

April 21 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Reserve your front-row seat to the future of digital health and med-tech!

  • Hear keynotes from leading mid-stage founders on how they launched their startups
  • Cheer on early-stage entrepreneurs as they live-pitch to investors and judges to compete for more than $40,000 in prizes and in-kind support
  • Join our virtual reality happy hour to connect with fellow innovation enthusiasts for some genuinely fun networking

The OHSU Invent-a-thon Post-Hack is a business plan competition that is open to all 49 teams that participated in the 2020 inaugural OHSU Invent-a-thon. Teams have been working hard since October to advance their projects, in many cases with support from our partners. We are excited to help highlight their progress and award follow-on funding for the most promising technologies.

From initial applications (teams, see the link below), we will select between six to eight teams that demonstrate the greatest chance of readiness for funding at this point in time. Participating teams will give a 7-min pitch to a panel of investors to compete for $40,000 in follow on funding, plus in-kind support.

Prizes:

1st place: $20,000            2nd place: $15,000            3rd place: $5,000

In addition to these cash prizes, a growing number of investor groups are partnering with us to provide follow-on support and additional prizes for teams. These investment partners include: AngelMD, Elevate Capital, Angel Capital Association, Portland Seed Fund, Aventurine, and TiE Oregon. We also anticipate other healthcare partners to observe the Post-Hack as they scout for future investment opportunities.
