Among the many tech vertical it lays claim to, New York is a Health Tech town, and if there’s any doubt at all in your mind, Blueprint Health Accelerator just graduated its 6th Class of startups and some of the biggest players and investors in health care were part in the Standing Room Only crowd at the City Winery.
One possible reason: Blueprint has graduated five previous classes. 90% of the companies are still active, and 85% of them are revenue positive, thanks to “patience plus strong founders working on real problems,” said Blueprint Health cofounder Mathew Farkash.
If there’s one thing that this latest batch demonstrated it’s that long gone are the days of doctors making house calls. In fact, technology seems to be moving towards disintermediating doctor visits more and more.
