Digital Health: Where Are the Billion $ Unicorns?

Tuesday, March 17
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon E
500 E 4th St

Digital health companies purport to transform a three trillion dollar US healthcare system, yet comparatively few multi-billion dollar companies have emerged relative to other industries. Despite the lack of high-value exits, venture funding in digital health continues to experience explosive growth. This raises two questions: where is the Facebook of digital health? And without one yet, why are investors pouring capital into the space?

In this panel session, top digital health investors will discuss why they are excited about digital health, the metrics billion dollar companies will demonstrate, and how to spot a unicorn.
