A Twentyseven Global client, Play-it Health, has achieved yet another milestone in the Denver startup world! On November 24, 2015, Dr. Kimberly Gandy, founder of Play-it Health and a Stanford and Duke trained cardiac surgeon and scientist, will compete with her health tech app, Plan-it Med, in the 1776 Challenge Cup in Denver, Colo. The Plan-it Med app provides reminders and education so that users can improve health engagement and was created through the Twentyseven Global startup program, Factory 27.
Plan-it Med connects patients and healthcare providers through a personalized health management app.
Steve Roatch, CEO of Twentyseven Global said, “We couldn’t be more excited for Kim and the Play-it Health team. 1776 is looking for two things: potential to transform industries and ability to impact millions of lives. Kim has the vision to do both and is already getting great traction in the clinical space. We are very excited about her chances to advance in this competition.”
On November 24, each startup in the competition will have exactly two minutes to deliver their winning pitch. After the pitches, three finalists will be announced and will advance to the regional competition, in San Francisco. Judges for the event are David Gold, Access Venture Partners; Lizelle Van Vuuren, Women Who Startup; and Erik Mitisek, Colorado Technology Association.
The 1776 Challenge Cup is a worldwide tournament for the most promising, world-changing startups to win cash prizes, make international connections and share their vision on a global stage. Denver is one of 45 cities around the world that will host a local competition. The winners advance to San Francisco for Regionals to compete for over $1 million in prizes.
