Dynofit beat 13 other health-care startups nationwide to win the recent Health Wildcatters’ Health Innovation Pitch Competition at the 10th Annual Healthcare Dealmakers Conference last week.
The Carrollton-based medical device startup, a 2015 Health Wildcatters graduate and TECH Fort Worth client, received $16,000 in cash and in kind prizes from Health Wildcatters and event sponsors, following four hours of elevator pitches from multiple companies.
“The Health Innovation Pitch Competition celebrates the spirit of entrepreneurship, and showcases emerging health-care companies with innovation solutions and treatments,” said Hubert Zajicek, CEO and co-founder of Health Wildcatters, adding that the competition included teams from across the U.S., as well as a few belonging to the health-care accelerator.
“However, the real prize is the opportunity to pitch in front of the audience of health-care private equity and venture capital investors,” he said.
Each competitor was given 10 minutes for their presentations and Q&As for the opportunity to win cash and in-kind prizes.
