Coming summer 2017, The Publicis Health “Digital Health Augmented Reality Startup Bootcamp”, in partnership with NYC Media Lab, will support emerging media and technology startup concepts developed by university faculty and students at the graduate level.
Publicis Health will award $25,000 funding and development support to five entrepreneurial teams. We are seeking creative technologists, engineers and designers who want to build augmented reality solutions to impact the healthcare industry. The accelerator will encourage and support customer discovery and market validation for five entrepreneurial teams. The goal is for all teams to emerge from the bootcamp with a plan for a minimum viable product.
“With immensely difficult healthcare systems and increased responsibility placed on patients, digital solutions are essential in helping people to navigate their conditions and care practices with simplicity,” said Richard Schwartz, SVP, Marketing and Connected Health Partnerships at Publicis Health. “Publicis Health believes that augmented reality technology, which leverages the devices people already have in their pockets, will provide patients with important insights, engagement opportunities, and the resources needed to better manage their health challenges.”
Publicis Groupe has a history of achievements in terms of embracing innovation, specifically through the recent global Publicis90 challenge. Publicis90 existed to support digital projects and startups through funding and mentoring, and selected 90 participating teams to celebrate the corporation’s 90th anniversary. NYC Media Lab also has a strong track record, having completed two cohorts of The Combine, its signature accelerator program that focuses on commercialization for university R&D. The Startup Bootcamp exemplifies a continuation of support for both parties.
