THE Entrepreneur TICKET

We believe that healthcare is changing rapidly and that tomorrow's healthcare will be better for all of us. That's why we created Health:Further. We pair entrepreneurs and investors once a year to further the dialogue on innovation in our industry.

As a bootstrapping entrepreneur, we're pleased to offer you a discounted ticket over the general admission prices. By purchasing this ticket you *BECOME ELIGIBLE TO APPLY* for the following offerings:

1. Entrepreneurs Alley- A small table space for limited marketing materials and/or laptop demos is provided in the Venture Zone. Your company logo and booth number will help guide investors and stakeholders to your organization at the Summit. It's required that you have one representative at the booth for the majority of the conference. 

*Purchasing an Entrepreneur Ticket does not guarantee a space on Entrepreneur's Alley. Space is limited to 30 companies (no extra charge). 

2. Mentor Hours with Investors and Stakeholders - Open to all Entrepreneur Ticket Holders.  This casual meeting space is designed for you to receive general feedback and network with investors and stakeholders.

If the Mentor Hours box is checked, you’ll be sent a link to sign up for meeting options. 

3. Investor Meetings – These are curated meetings for later-stage companies with growth-stage investors. Designed to be more intentional and exclusive, these meetings are for companies looking to raise a later round of funding. A vetting and selection process based on the stage and size of your company will occur.
