InvisionHeart, LLC, a Vanderbilt startup based on a wireless electrocardiogram system, is headed to California for Google’s Demo Day April 2. The company is one of 10 startups nationwide chosen to participate in the inaugural event that provides the opportunity to learn from experts and gain exposure to Silicon Valley investors.
“We’re thrilled to be selected by the Nashville Entrepreneur Center and Google Ventures to present our technology to Silicon Valley investors and companies,” says CEO Josh Nickols. “It is a fantastic opportunity to access new capital and develop partnerships that will grow a valuable technology beyond the Vanderbilt and Nashville healthcare community.”
Nickols will have five minutes to pitch their products at the Google Headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. A brief Q&A with the judges panel will follow and the winner will be chosen at the end of the event. The panel consists of Steve Case, chairman and CEO of Revolution, co-founder of American Online (AOL) and chairman of UP Global and The Case Foundation; Stephanie Palmeri, Principal with SoftTech VC; and MC Siegler, general partner at Google Ventures.
