With over $2.6 billion in funding awarded to date, Venture Atlanta continues to be the Southeast’s leading tech investor and entrepreneurial connection event
ATLANTA – September 20, 2018 – SynsorMed announced today that it has been chosen as one of 34 Venture Atlanta Startup Showcase “companies to watch,” a group comprised of the most exciting early-stage businesses that are bringing big ideas to the next decade.
As a Venture Atlanta Startup Showcase Company, SynsorMed will be spotlighted during a special networking event on October 16 where it will provide a “sneak peek” of its products and business plan and be given the opportunity to connect with investors, entrepreneurs and other technology leaders.
The 11th annual Venture Atlanta is the Southeast’s premier event for connecting technology innovation and investment capital and will take place October 16-17 in the heart of downtown Atlanta. With representation of over 140 funds and a roster of exciting speakers—including presentations from 33 of the region’s top rising star technology companies and keynotes from former NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson and Dave DeWalt, former CEO of FireEye, McAfee and Documentum—this year’s anticipated to be sold-out event is on track to be the largest and best yet.
“We are excited to be included as a Showcase company during the 2018 Venture Atlanta event. We look forward to highlighting our new reimbursable patient monitoring platform for the healthcare industry ,” said SynsorMed Chief Executive Officer Theo Harvey.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, hospital readmissions related to chronic conditions cost healthcare systems over $500M in 2017. SynsorMed's reimbursable remote patient monitoring platform for healthcare systems is looking to manage patients who suffer from chronic conditions post discharge. Our mobile first, AI-enabled platform integrates with devices like pulse oximeters and blood pressure cuffs enabling hospitals to catch costly exacerbations before a patient is readmitted. Hospitals and Clinicians using our system have seen readmissions reduced by 20%. Our platform is reimbursable which allows physicians a new revenue source.
“For eleven years, Venture Atlanta has been connecting the Southeast’s best and brightest innovators with top-tier investors and other leaders in our technology ecosystem—helping to launch over 400 companies and secure over $2.6 billion in funding,” said Allyson Eman, executive director of Venture Atlanta. “This year, we’re thrilled to be showcasing the strongest and largest group yet of early and venture-stage companies as well as exciting startups still in the beginning stages. These companies reflect the incredible pool of talented people and continued opportunities for growth and innovation within our technology community.”
