Yesterday, LabDoor was accepted into the prestigious Rock Health incubator. Needless to say, we are thrilled to be a part of this awesome organization and add a great set of new advisors and investors, including Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, Mayo Clinic Innovation Fund, Aberdare Ventures, and Mohr Davidow Ventures.
Here’s a sampling of health and technology experts responding to the exciting new Rock Health class, its fourth:
Here’s TechCrunch’s description: Rock Health, the seed accelerator for startups focused on the health space, landed a big, new partner back in August: The well-known Silicon Valley venture firm, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. The result of the new partnership? The promise of a considerably larger seed investment for its next batch of startups, as Kleiner joined Rock Health’s existing partners in offering $100K in seed funding to each founding team.
GigaOM cited an impressive statistic: The San Francisco-based health tech accelerator on Thursday announced its fourth class of 14 startups, saying that it accepted less than 3 percent of the applicants.
- Gianrico Farrugia, M.D., Associate Director of Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation: “Mayo’s involvement is focused on working with others in the healthcare industry to advance the delivery of health care in new ways to meet the needs of patients now and in the future. Together, we can innovate more and accomplish more.”
- Beth Seidenberg, M.D., Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers: “Our goal is to bring together KPCB’s 40 year history of leadership in information technology and life sciences with entrepreneurs who want to change the healthcare industry.”
- MedCityNews listed LabDoor among companies “helping consumers make better choices about care.”
