InvisionHeart, LLC, a startup based on a wireless ECG system developed at Vanderbilt, has been selected as one of 10 startups nationwide to participate in Google's inaugural Demo Day. Josh Nickols, CEO, will pitch his company to a roomful of investors at the spring Silicon Valley event.
"We're thrilled to be selected by the Nashville EC and Google Ventures to present our technology to Silicon Valley investors and companies," said Nickols. "It is a fantastic opportunity to access new capital and develop partnerships that will grow a valuable technology beyond the Vanderbilt and Nashville healthcare community."
Demo Day will be held April 2 at Google Headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. The startups will have five minutes to pitch their products followed by a brief Q&A with the judges panel -- Steve Case, chairman and CEO of Revolution, founder of American Online, and chairman of UP Global and The Case Foundation; Stephanie Palmeri, principal with SoftTech VC; and MG Siegler, general partner at Google Ventures. After all pitches have been heard, the judges wil select a winner.
Congrats and good luck, InvisionHeart!
