Techstars is excited to announce a new accelerator program with Cedars-Sinai focused on transforming innovation in health and healthcare delivery. Cedars and Techstars are committed to inviting the most promising and innovative entrepreneurs to Los Angeles to create the best new technology in the healthcare industry.

The Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, in partnership with Cedars-Sinai, will support the leading academic medical center’s focus on developing innovative approaches to medicine and science that not only further enhance the quality of the care but ensure it is provided in a patient-centered, cost-effective manner. Cedars-Sinai, the largest nonprofit academic medical center in the western United States, is known internationally for providing the highest-quality, most advanced patient care.

The Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, in partnership with Cedars-Sinai, will offer companies with pioneering ideas that improve the quality, safety and efficiency of health and healthcare delivery with access to a vast array of resources, including mentors from Cedars-Sinai and the Techstars’ network.

This is Techstars’ second program in L.A. in addition to the hugely successful Disney program we’ve run over the past two years. Building upon the success of this program, we’ve developed a strong ecosystem of mentors and investors in L.A. to tap into. We are proud of this new partnership with Cedars-Sinai and look forward to continuing to grow the global entrepreneurial ecosystem around healthcare innovation!

The Techstars Healthcare Accelerator, in partnership with Cedars-Sinai, will kick off in Los Angeles in March 2016, and applications open today.
