Morgenthaler Ventures, a leading venture capital firm, announced today a nationwide contest called "DC to VC: HIT Startup Showcase" to find the best startup ideas in health information technology (HIT).
The competition is open to any US entrepreneur seeking seed or Series-A funding for startups that are applying cutting-edge technology to improve the quality and delivery of healthcare. Applications are being accepted today through August 9, 2011 at www.dctovc.com. Ten finalists will be selected and offered the chance to present in front of 200 venture capitalists, angel investors and entrepreneurs on September 22, 2011.
Held at Microsoft's auditorium in Mountain View, the HIT Startup Showcase will include presentations by Washington, DC policymakers as well as leading VCs and angel investors. Last year's DC to VC summit featured keynotes from Aneesh Chopra, chief technology officer of the United States and Todd Park, chief technology officer of the Department of Health and Human Services.

This annual conference explores the innovations that are likely to transform the global healthcare marketplace. It provides a forum where business and government leaders, academics and students can debate the forces that will shape healthcare delivery in the 21st century. In this event, the participants will learn how business, both large and small, established and startup, US-based and global, innovate to improve patient outcomes while attempting to control the growth in health care costs.
