November 12th, 2011 · No Comments

Rock Health is a new seed accelerator for health startups. It’s like a Y Combinator for healthcare.

This is how they describe their program on their About page:

Startups partake in an intensive 5-month program, turning ideas into products and businesses.  Our next class will begin in January 2012.

A few of days ago, their class of 2011 presented at Rock Health’s first “Demo Day” in San Francisco. I didn’t attend the event but I was able to follow some of it on Twitter by searching the #rockdemo hashtag. Many of these companies are still early stage and haven’t publicly launched their products yet.
