2020 – Coulter Investment Forum

Due to COVID-19 the Philadelphia Healthcare Innovation Conference will now be held in Fall 2021.  The event is sponsored by The Wallace H. Coulter Foundation and co-hosted by Drexel University and the Penn Center for Innovation.

In October, 2019, the event was a one-day start-up pitch competition and investment forum which brought together 40 of the brightest and innovative companies in the areas of medical devices, therapeutics and diagnostics, healthcare IT, and delivery solutions.  Companies competed for prize packages to accelerate the development and success of their healthcare solution – including a cash prize totaling $25,000.
