THE Nashville Entrepreneur Center announced that its 2019-20 Project Healthcare Portfolio cohort includes 18 startups.
The cohort companies will all be briefly introduced during an event at the EC this evening, beginning at 5 p.m. Details here.
The year-long Portfolio program helps accelerate the 18 startups enrolled in the full EC Project Healthcare Portfolio curriculum, Healthcare industry immersion with executives and other support. The EC says Project Healthcare is aimed at helping to transform the U.S. healthcare industry.
Project Healthcare is supported by partners including Ascension, HCA Healthcare Inc., ApolloGlobal Management-backed LifePoint Health Inc. (Brentwood), Nashville Health Care Council, Launch Tennessee, and early-stage Carefluence (a Michigan-based telehealth and medical interoperability player).
Headsup: EC staff confirmed today they have selected, but have not yet announced an additional eight startups that will be pilot members of a separate cohort designed for "pre-Portfolio" companies that want to prepare for possible admission to future Portfolio cohorts.
