AireHealth - Leveraging the Magic of our Region
It was a busy week for the AireHealth team in the Orlando region. The week started off with two days at the Guidewell ScaleUp & Emerging Health Tech Accelerator and concluded with a presentation for the Orlando Economic Partnership. It was a honor and pleasure to be a part of both of these events.
GuideWell ScaleUp & Emerging Health Tech Accelerators
AireHealth started a busy week in the region at the GuideWell Accelerator boot camp, “an 8-week technology accelerator program focused on Scale Up and Emerging technology companies.” We had two days jam packed with information and activities with 9 other female founded healthcare companies from across the southeast. The boot camp was held at the GuideWell Innovation Center in Orlando, FL. Each day consisted of a blend of workshops and speakers combined with 1:1 mentoring sessions. Throughout the day we had the opportunity to hear from and meet with experienced health tech entrepreneurs and healthcare executives. The speaker presentations were held in the sate of the art GuideWell Innovation Theater. If you are in the Orlando area, and have not had a chance to see this facility. We highly encourage you to check it out.
The boot camp started off with introductory pitches from all of the companies in the GuideWell accelerator program. We enjoyed learning about all the companies and meeting all the founders and team members. We look forward to participating in the accelerator program over the next seven week with all of you.
Friday morning, co-Founders Jason Eichenholz and Stacie Ruth shared the story of AireHealth’s genesis over the past few years and the accomplishments over the past few months. The two co-founders spoke about, and took questions from the audience regarding the process of building a company in Orlando and the Central Florida area. Questions from the audience including everything from financing and fundraising to attracting and keeping talent in Florida. Jason’s response “leverage the magic of our region.”
