This week’s bonus episode was recorded live at the 2017 Healthbox Studio Showcase! Healthbox hosts the program to support and advance entrepreneurial innovation, which aligns with our overall mission to empower the reinvention of healthcare. The program helps accelerate emerging digital health companies and fosters relationships between startup founders and industry leaders. Healthbox hosts the program free of charge to selected companies with no required equity exchange. The Studio ran from October 9-13 at the Healthbox office in Chicago, IL and featured presentations, workshops, and mentor sessions from the Healthbox team and other industry leaders.

In this episode, host Chuck Feerick sat down with four participants from the Studio to explore what their companies do and the problems they solve, what some of their biggest takeaways from the week were, a favorite session or two from the week, and what is the first thing they’ll do once they get back to their teams.
