Healthbox Healthcare Startup Incubator Application Deadline

Yesterday, I got an email talking about the final deadline for getting your application in to be part of the Healthbox program. It’s a 3 month healthcare focused incubator program in Chicago for healthcare startup companies. I’ll be interested to hear how this and other healthcare incubator type programs work out. I wonder if any EMR companies will come out of them. Probably not in this first round since they said they have disease management solutions, informatics, and consumer health.

Good afternoon,

Applications to Healthbox’s startup accelerator program are closing soon!  We are thrilled to have received applications from many promising entrepreneurs from around the country.  The ideas cover a range of healthcare topics, including disease management solutions, informatics, and consumer health, to name a few.

Final application deadline: Sunday, Oct 16th, 11:59 PM PT

If you know a healthcare startup that would benefit from our program, please encourage them to apply at

Selected participants will gain access to our national group of mentors and strategic partners, and will spend a significant portion of the three-month program in Chicago, engaging with other entrepreneurs in our collaborative workspace.  Participants will also receive $50,000 in seed capital, and the program will culminate in an organized Investor Day, where teams will present to a broad group of healthcare investors.

We look forward to reviewing the applications and selecting ten promising teams to join us in January.  Thanks for your ongoing support!
