Let’s talk Business – Explore Healthcare Opportunities in Austin & Houston with us!

While SXSW draws many innovators into town for a short period of time, Austin and neighboring Houston are worth a trip for any healthcare expert. They are two of the most important healthcare markets of the US with leading universities, research facilities, corporations as well as private and public hospitals. Over 200 life science companies in the region, and a workforce of nearly 12,300 are focused on the highest growth segments and research areas in the industry, including the specialties of biologics, medical devices, diagnostics, pharmaceutical, contract research, and others. More than 3,700 companies with 93,800 workers make the State of Texas one of the leading biotech states in the country!

We lead the WAY!

In collaboration with SXSW, we decided to offer curated tours for startups, corporate innovators, healthcare specialists as well as researchers to explore business opportunities in Texas. In four days and small groups we will:

  • Meet up to 10 selected digital health influencers in two of America’ss most relevant healthcare hubs: Houston & Austin
