UConn-Backed MedTech Accelerator Advances 10 Powerful Startups

The excitement was palpable Monday night as 10 health care startups, including two that are UConn-grown, shared their medical technology innovations that promise unique solutions for some of medicine’s most vexing problems.
“Startups always talk about changing the world, but these companies will absolutely change lives,” said entrepreneurship expert Alex Farcet, who was among hundreds of people who packed The Bushnell theater.

The audience—composed of health care, business and economic development executives—cheered loudly for the startups, who had just completed a 12-week business accelerator program, sponsored by Hartford HealthCare, the UConn School of Business, Launch Hartford and Trinity College.

Many of the speakers at the event spoke passionately about how Hartford’s commitment to incubate innovative medical technology could bring lasting economic growth to the region.
