NYCEDC and HITLAB have helped dozens early-stage health tech startups test, iterate, and develop their technologies and business strategies. Startups have built upon these insights to bring their technologies to market and broad use.
- Since 2013, finalists in the HITLAB World Cup have gone on to raise more than $50 million in venture capital after participating in the competition.
- Since launching in 2013, the Digital Health Marketplace (formerly Pilot Health Tech NYC) grant awardees have gone on to raise $170 million in venture funding, create more than 100 high-tech jobs, and impact the lives of countless patients in the city of New York.
Another distinguishing feature of the Network is there are no fees to apply or participate if selected, nor are there IP or equity commitments.
