In 2017, the EC invited 13 healthcare startups in our community to be a part of a pilot version of Project Healthcare Portfolio. Not only were we able to support these teams through industry connections and curriculum, we also were able to test out our ideas, learn, iterate, and create the full version of Project Healthcare Portfolio.

I believe experienced leaders have a responsibility to empower others to contribute to progressive solutions for our healthcare system - especially first-time entrepreneurs who may need the most support due to the complexities in healthcare. After spending the majority of my career in the startup space growing tech-enabled healthcare companies, I have gained valuable insight that should be shared.

"What an honor to be able to share my experience as an Advisor to the Nashville Entrepreneur Center through their previous Project Healthcare pilot and now to be by their side as they begin the incredibly important launch of the formal Project Healthcare Portfolio Program. I have had a tremendous experience working with the EC, networking with similar business-minded individuals, and having privilege of mentoring entrepreneurs who are running growth-oriented startups in the healthcare industry."

"The EC and Project Healthcare team is first rate. They took the time to understand the heart of our business, so they could match us with the right resources within the EC network. When we entered as a pilot team, we had a niche customer market. The Project Healthcare team helped us connect with decision-makers across the broader healthcare landscape to grow our business."
