On October 20, a crowd of entrepreneurs, tech executives and healthcare professionals gathered at the corner of 35th and Brighton in the River North district of Denver as Larry Burgess broke ground and officially began the construction of Catalyst HTI. The new Catalyst campus will be the first-of-its-kind health-tech innovation hub that will eventually be called home by many of the people who gathered to witness the commencement.
When completed in Spring 2018, according to Cyber Med News, the 180,000 square foot building will serve as a health-tech industry integrator that brings up and coming startups, major tech corporations and healthcare organizations together under one roof. By consolidating Colorado’s continuously growing healthcare ecosystem within Catalyst, there will be increased potential for partnerships and funding for early stage companies that will allow large corporations to work alongside the innovators who are working to transform the industry.
According to Denverite, notable corporations that plan to be a tenant at Catalyst include Hitachi, Angel MD, CU-Anschutz, Kaiser Permanente, Medical Group Management Association, Prime Health, and Boulder-based health tech accelerator Boomtown. In addition, Catalyst is expected to be the new home of around 50 digital health startups.
Twentyseven Global attended the groundbreaking ceremony and plans to relocate its Denver office to the building once complete in 2018.
