As BetaKit expands the breadth and depth of its coverage, we’ve often chosen the hottest topics in tech: FinTech, AI, retail (yes, retail). It’s rare we have the chance to choose a tech vertical that’s both hot and important.
The data from 2017 shows that healthtech funding is primed to grow in 2018. That’s good news, because even investors believe that there’s currently a broad lack of available capital for early-stage healthtech companies in Canada.
When it comes to healthcare, we’re all users. And the problems startups solve are matters of life and death.
But why is that important? Because although all successful startups solve problems for their users, when it comes to healthcare, we’re all users, and the problems can often be matters of life and death. Healthtech companies are the ones helping hospitals track critically-ill patients, making healthcare more accessible by bringing back the house call, making protein testing cheaper for medical researchers, or helping patients aggregate their medical records.
So BetaKit is happy to announce the launch of H|T: The Healthtech Times Newsletter. The Healthtech Times will be a weekly newsletter (delivered on the weekends) covering healthtech news from Canada and around the globe. We’re proud to launch H|T in conjunction with Canadian healthtech startup MediSeen, which will also power BetaKit’s healthtech coverage. Our goal is to raise the profile of healthtech in Canada, and increase awareness of the challenges healthtech companies face trying to make our lives better.
So subscribe to H|T using the form below to ensure the latest healthtech news hits your inbox every week. If you have any feedback on how we can make The Healthtech Times better, or a request for additional weekly newsletters, don’t hesitate to email us here!
