Health Global Gathering 2013: Extraordinary People and Technologies, Transforming Healthcare Together

Some of the biggest names in digital health will meet in Dublin this Thursday 30th May at Health Founders Club, an exclusive event taking place as part of the Health Global Gathering. An Taoiseach Enda Kenny will visit the event which brings together 50 select global, top ranked influencers, world leading investors and cutting edge start-ups to connect, engage and debate some of the biggest issues in global healthcare.

Guests at the event include Darren Hite, Aberdare Ventures; Barry O’Brien, Silicon Valley Bank; Gary Fingerhut, Cleveland Clinic and founder of Sproxil Ashifi Gogo, described by Bill Clinton as ‘genuinely remarkable.’ They will gather together to discuss latest industry insights and attend open workshops to debate themed topics; ‘The Digital Health Revolution,’ ‘Where is the Silicon Valley of Digital Health?’ and ‘Digital Health in Emerging Markets.’ Also attending are John Nosta, the world’s top ranked health and medicine influencer, and Leslie Ziegler, Co-founder and Chief Evangelist of Rock Health. The seven select startups from the US, Australia, Africa, Finland, Canada and two home-based Irish teams will meet the guests and have the opportunity to showcase their technologies. Darren Hite, Partner at San Francisco based digital health investment firm Aberdare Ventures, presenting at Health Founders Club, said;Aberdare Ventures invests in transformational opportunities that enable a more efficient and less costly global healthcare system. Clearly, Health shares our vision and I am looking forward to participating in their event and meeting their talented entrepreneurs.’

Health is the first digital health accelerator with a global vision and worldwide mentor network. Health’s first program commenced earlier this year with an elite group of startups from Finland, Canada, Ghana, Australia, the US and Ireland selected from hundreds of global applications to solve some of the biggest issues in healthcare and improve quality of care. The process culminates this Thursday at Health Global Gathering from 2pm, when 300+ global influencers attendees will be flying in from all over the world to watch the startups pitch, discuss investment opportunities with other influencers and learn more about how digital health can and will transform the way we live.

The initiative is supported by IBM, Enterprise Ireland, Silicon Valley Bank, Novartis, Cleveland Clinic, GlaxoSmithKline, PHS, Reckitt Benckiser and Nesta.
