Moving Analytics is a 2019 Rosenman Innovator company.

In the past six months, the MassChallenge HealthTech (MCHT) program experienced both unprecedented change and growth. The 2020 cohort was one of the strongest to date, earning more revenue and funding from the previous year’s cohort, creating jobs, and launching numerous pilots with our industry Champions while also providing MCHT with its highest NPS to date (88 NPS). All of this was accomplished with the added complexity of navigating a global pandemic. 

Over 350 applicants from around the world applied to the 2020 MassChallenge HealthTech (MCHT) accelerator program last fall. After a rigorous judging process, 27 of the top digital health startups joined the 2020 cohort after receiving and accepting over 100 partnership offers from MassChallenge HealthTech Champions. Throughout the six-month program, these startups would work closely with their Champion partners to accelerate their innovations and received resources, feedback, and mentorship from the MCHT team. 

Then the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit the United States. The HealthTech team and 2020 cohort faced unprecedented adversity and demonstrated amazing resilience through the program: the HealthTech team pivoted quickly in late February through early March to design a completely virtual and equally impactful second half of the 2020 program. Continuing to work closely with their Champions in the program, many of the startups experienced huge successes both within and outside MassChallenge.

Typically, we would have celebrated the end of our program with a community-driven Finale event. While we are very sad to not be able to host Finale and celebrate our cohort in person this year, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a virtual Finale + Application Launch event on Thursday September 10th from 3:30-5:00PM EST. We hope you can attend and celebrate the success of our startups. 

On behalf of the HealthTech team, we are extremely excited and proud to announce the top three winners of the 2020 program: 

Diamond Winner Presented by Vertex Pharmaceuticals

Walk With Path (London, UK): Walk with Path acts to improve quality of life for the growing aging population and reduce healthcare costs. 

Platinum Winner Presented by WeHealth Digital Medicine

Moving Analytics (Los Angeles, CA): Moving Analytics has developed Movn, a virtual rehab service that supports patients with cardiovascular disease. 

Gold Winner Presented by Accenture

MedFlyt (Forrest Hills, NY): Medflyt offers a cloud-based, web platform and mobile app that changes the way home care agencies are matching caregivers with patients at home. 

Additionally, due to the pandemic, MCHT increased its $250K prize allocation to $300K and distributed those funds per the cohort’s request across all companies to support pilots and economic recovery. If you are interested in supporting the next generation of entrepreneurs, consider giving a gift of any amount to MassChallenge Healthtech or sponsoring an award at MCHT Finale 2020.

We’ll be announcing additional awards during our upcoming Finale + Launch event to learn about the Women in Digital Health, Startup’s Choice, and Champion of the Year award winners on September 10! The winners will also sit down with their Champions to discuss their progress in the program—learn why these companies were the best-in-class for 2020.
