Digital health entrepreneurs sought for hackathon weekend, shot at $5K

Aspiring entrepreneurs with business ideas in the field of digital health are encouraged to participate in a hackathon next weekend and a shot at a $5,000 cash prize sponsored by Cigna.

Upward Hartford and InsurTech Hartford are teaming up to host Digital Health Hackathon Weekend Feb. 9-11 at Upward Hartford, the coworking, networking and incubator space spanning two floors of the Stilts Building downtown at 20 Church St. The two held a similar event in September.

The weekend will feature top regional developers, designers, coaches, entrepreneurs, mentors and judges. Participating teams will compete to create prototypes that demonstrate artful coding and design skills while also articulating clear business-use cases – all focused on driving the next generation of digital health applications. The goal is to start with an idea on Friday night and leave Sunday evening with a startup company and new network contacts.

Admission is $100 per person and $65 for students, which includes six catered meals, unlimited coffee, soda and water, and the opportunity to meet mentors, investors, industry coaches and others in the field. For more information, call 860-785-2716 or visit www.upwardhartford.com.
