Here’s a look at one of the panels at the conference: The Next Phase of Digital Health Investment (sponsored by Ford Hutman Media)
Before the pandemic, digital health investments were steadily increasing year by year but 2020 was a massive year for investment in this sector. The Digital Health Market size was estimated at more than $106 billion in 2019 and the industry will grow at 28.5% CAGR through 2026. A growing number of Covid-19 cases across the globe has increased the adoption of digital health technologies and will boost digital health industry growth.
With so many new entrants and deals coming into the digital health space, how do investment firms manage all the new entrants and deal flow effectively? What effects has Covid-19 had on health tech investment strategies and where are the opportunities for innovative solutions to emerge? What common mistakes do entrepreneurs make in the age of Covid? Any tips or advice for how entrepreneurs can avoid or course correct? Is the current crisis prompting a fundamental shift in favor of healthcare digitization? What digital health investments are here to stay and what are just noise? Leading digital health investment funds discuss the exciting future of digital health technologies.
