Meet the 2023 Rosenman Innovators

Home » Blog » Meet the 2023 Rosenman Innovators

At UCSF, we have the opportunity to thrive, innovate, and learn from one another and our great community. Earlier this month, we welcomed eight early-stage startups into our vibrant community at the Rosenman Innovators Demo Day live and in-person at UCSF. Healthtech investors lined up for the event eager to meet the 2023 Rosenman Innovators who are developing technology ranging from implantables to healthcare service solutions.  

The 2023 Rosenman Innovators were vetted by our cross-functional panel of seasoned judges, coached by our extensive network of executive mentors, and join our community of founders that have to date raised $2.5 billion in capital and have impacted over 110 million lives. Our goal for the Rosenman Innovators program is to provide resources and connections for startup companies that we hope will change lives for millions more.
