Watch for 2022 registration information

Accelerating digital and telehealth solutions that empower rural healthcare

A 20Fathoms initiative, the HealthSpark Accelerator empowers digital and telehealth startups to navigate the complex healthcare industry and successfully introduce their products.

Participating digital and telehealth companies engage with healthcare experts across the business spectrum to learn how to bridge operational and delivery gaps. Successful participants will graduate with a more robust and networked company as well as the knowledge and preparation to execute a pilot with a rural hospital system.

Opportunities are available for rural healthcare providers, mentors, angel and venture investors, corporates, and strategic partners.
