Team Skimble is rocking out today! We’re thrilled to announce that we will be as part of the inaugural Rock Health program this summer in San Francisco.
Our mission is to enable and empower an entrepreneurial cure for the relative lack of innovation in the health sector. The world of patient care and healthy living is foreign to the technological creativity found in social media, games and other verticals. Rock Health directly targets the gap between these ecosystems, enabling high-impact innovation. – Halle Tecco, Managing Director of Rock Health
We’ve been fortunate to grow organically thus far and lead with top free Healthcare & Fitness apps. We’re pysched to continue to spread our active wings with the support and encouragement of the health and fitness community at large!
Rock Health partners include Mayo Clinic, Nike, Accel Partners, NEA, Aberdare Ventures, Mohr Davidow, Harvard Medical School, Microsoft and Qualcomm to name a few.
We’ll also have access to an incredible support team along with rockstar mentors such as Linda Avey, co-founder of 23andMe, Frank Moss, MIT Media Lab director, Michael Abbott, VP of Engineering at Twitter, Ron Gutman, founder of HealthTap & Wellsphere, Dave Morin, co-founder of Path, Emily Chang, co-founder of Ideacodes, Lee Byron, interactive information designer at Facebook, and Charles Huang, co-founder of GuitarHero.
And, we’re in great company! Skimble will have the pleasure to bunk with these Rock Health startups over the summer program: Activate Health, BrainBot, CellScope, Genomera, Health In Reach, Heart Beat, Omada Health, Pipette, WeSprout
