Our fourth Meetup will focus on lean startups based in Northern Virginia. Lean startups who are developing technology to support healthcare, education, and social services are welcome to submit proposals for review. We are especially interested in telehealth, medical devices, machine learning, software intended for interoperability between EHR systems, and other emerging technologies.

Our goal is to select five startups to be featured as presenters, each company will have 10 minutes to demo their respective platforms and Q&A. A panel of experts and investors will be invited to attend, names will be posted before the meeting.
