Rosenman Innovators

Helping entrepreneurs bring life-changing healthtech to market in a big way.

Jumpstart Your Innovation

Connect with people who can speed up your scale up: subject matter experts, clinicians, partners and investors.

Rosenman’s hands-on mentorship, guidance and the program’s suite of benefits can help you navigate the path to commercialization like the insider you will soon be.

How It Works

Each spring, we invite startups in diagnostics, digital health, health services, or medical devices to pitch our panel of judges (a mix of financial/strategic investors, subject matter expertise and clinicians).

Judges select approximately 10 companies who will:

  • Receive customized and strategic coaching in communications, product development, IP, clinical/regulatory, reimbursement, marketing, and business strategy from our network of experts.
  • Receive insight and recommendations from our team on how to hone their investor pitch deck, and get exposure to a select group of motivated investors and industry partners. Previous Innovators have had investments made in their Series A rounds as a result of this program.
  • Join their fellow Rosenman Innovator companies to get further exposure at the Rosenman Symposium, a June event that draws more than 700 attendees.

Who Can Apply?

Rosenman Innovators is open to early-stage healthtech companies (up to and including Series A investment) based anywhere in the world, preferably with a C-level leader operating or resident in California.

No university affiliation is required.

If you have submitted an application in previous years but didn’t make it to the final cohort, we welcome you to apply again if your company has made progress.

Key Dates

Applications are closed for the 2020 cycle and will open again early next year. Dates and details about how to apply will be posted in January 2021. Sign up for our email list so you don’t miss any details.

In-Kind Services

Our participating partners will choose the recipients of their services from among the 10 Rosenman Innovators. Criteria include technology, market potential, and how much a startup would benefit from a particular service. Visit the Rosenman Network page for full details.
