Evren Technologies, Inc. Selected to Participate in the GuideWell Innovation Emerging Health Tech Accelerator for Women-founded Health Tech Companies Summer 2019

Gainesville, FL – 6.18.2019 – Evren Technologies is pleased to announce their invitation to participate in the Summer 2019 GuideWell Innovation Emerging Health Tech Accelerator program for women-founded health tech companies.

GuideWell Innovation, in affiliation with Springboard Enterprises, has selected five companies to participate in the Emerging Health Tech Accelerator Program in parallel with the Scale-Up Accelerator cohort for the Summer 2019. The Emerging Health Tech Accelerator will be a 10-week program that provides opportunities for promising pre-revenue health tech companies to tap into the Scale-Up Accelerator program and mentor network, while also participating in additional program elements for early-stage, pre-revenue companies.

“We look forward to kicking off this exciting opportunity with the other companies in our cohort, as well as with those in the Scale-Up cohort for Summer 2019. GuideWell and Springboard were very generous in opening an additional cohort for more early-stage companies and we are delighted to have been one of those selected.” - Blythe Karow, President & COO, Evren Technologies.

For the Summer 2019 cohorts, GuideWell Innovation is partnering with Springboard Enterprises, a nationally recognized accelerator dedicated to technology companies founded by women. Springboard Enterprises is a nationally recognized accelerator for women-led, high growth, scalable businesses.

“We were thrilled with the quality of the applicant pool of female-founded companies at varying stages, which is why we made the decision to expand the program to include an Emerging Health Tech cohort for earlier stage companies as well as the Scale-Up Accelerator cohort for those that are more established. We are honored to be able to work with these amazing companies. The collaboration with Springboard brings forward a fantastic network of mentors that I know will help accelerate the growth of these companies.” - Kirstie McCool, Executive Director of GuideWell Innovation.

The GuideWell Scale-Up Accelerator kicks off on July 10 with an intense two-day boot camp and cumulates on August 29-30 with a nationally sourced health tech corporate/investor matchmaking event. The Emerging Health Tech cohort will continue through September 13, with additional mentoring and an opportunity to present to investors at the Starter Studio Health Investor Showcase.
