SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 01/21/14 -- Working within the start-up ecosystem towards a common goal of nurturing innovators who bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and solve real-world issues, Tallwave today announced that its CEO and Founding Partner Jeff Pruitt, is joining an esteemed group of "Scorpions" selected to evaluate healthcare entrepreneurs at the BioAccel Solutions Challenge on January 24 at the Wrigley Mansion in Phoenix, Arizona.
Designed to stimulate new company formation as well as increase investment in the healthcare industry, BioAccel's inaugural Solutions Challenge event will award qualified entrepreneurs with a $50,000 investment from BioAccel if the applicants succeed in receiving matching funds from the "Scorpions" in the "Scorpion Pit." Successful applicants will then have $100,000 in proof-of-concept dollars to form their companies to address issues regarding hemodialysis access, medication management, digital health or wound therapy.
"In the area of healthcare, we greatly value BioAccel's expertise in nurturing a qualified pipeline of applicants so they can also benefit from our venture development expertise," said Jeff Pruitt, Chairman of the Board, Founding Partner & CEO, Tallwave. "It's critical for the entire innovation ecosystem to collaborate to provide entrepreneurs with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed."
