Innovative healthcare entrepreneurs now have a new sounding board to showcase their business ideas. Springboard Equity, a new private equity funding platform focused on healthcare startups, is launching Get Pitched, a "Shark Tank" format webinar series geared to inform investors of private market deals. The fast-paced format is meant to keep pitches concise and engaging, while providing investors everything they need to know from these pre-vetted companies before making a decision. The webinar series debuts Thursday, February 18 at 3 p.m. ET. You can register for the event here.
The first webinar is hosted by Lyle Martin, CEO of Springboard, and will feature two health technology companies: ZALEA and Thrive in a live 30-minute Shark Tank-style pitch. “We’re excited to kick-off the Get-Pitched webinar series with ZALEA and Thrive, two companies that are positioned to be great investment opportunities. We expect the webinar to be a lot fun and a huge success for the companies and the investor audience,” Lyle Martin, chief executive officer of Springboard Equity, said.
Equities.com had the opportunity to speak with Martin earlier this year and learn more about Springboard Equity and the compelling concept of Conscious Capitalism. By democratizing capital for these early stage companies, Springboard aims to empower entrepreneurs and innovators to be able to really make a difference.
“There’s always kind of been this gap in funding for early stage companies needing to raise one to two million dollars,” said Martin. “Springboard is looking to address that market. Within our first year, we want to place and help secure funding for 50 companies and further strengthen some of our collaborative relationships. There are hundreds of really innovative healthcare companies out there from a technology standpoint that can dramatically improve healthcare.”
