About this Program
Sopris Capital together with Adaptation Health and The Idea Village have partnered to launch this company application for The Southeast Health Innovation Tour. The opportunity seeks to connect emerging healthcare entrepreneurs (who are focused on addressing needs among vulnerable populations) directly with access to capital, contacts in Medicaid, and opportunities to scale. Sopris Capital, Adaptation Health, and The Idea Village recognize that innovation is not only happening in coastal cities and this project hopes to connect with innovators outside major markets to better understand new and emerging companies. Founders interested in participating in this opportunity can apply here now.
The Tour provides entrepreneurs looking to raise an early-stage financing round the opportunity to meet with a VC in hopes of a future deal or term sheet. Further, this will help to identify emerging companies that provide value to insurers and State Medicaid markets and where viable, grow into direct contract development partnership opportunities.
Companies that are accepted to participate, will meet with Adaptation Health, Sopris Capital, and The Idea Village in small, semi-private investor meetings (subject to change given evolving public health regulations). The Tour is accepting applications to meet with companies in the following cities:
- Little Rock
- New Orleans
The final meeting locations will be determined by the number of qualifying applicants per location. All dates for the small in-person meetings are currently TBA, and the Tour will closely monitor and follow all public health recommendations and best practices throughout the planning.
