Nicolette Selected to Join Fourth Class at Cedars-Sinai Accelerator
July 26, 2018 (LOS ANGELES) Nicolette is proud to announce its selection to the fourth class of healthcare startups at the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator. Started in 2015, the accelerator program provides companies with investment money, expert programming, and mentorship from health and technology leaders from Cedars-Sinai and a broad global network through Techstars, an organization that works with entrepreneurs to cultivate their ideas.
“By participating in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator, we have the privilege of working alongside world-class healthcare leaders to optimize the value of NicoBoard to both NICU parents and health care systems,” states Nicolette CEO Phil Martie. “It is an opportunity we will leverage to the max.”
One of those healthcare leaders working with Nicolette is Anne Wellington, managing director of the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator. She has gotten to know Nicolette well through the selection process.
“In selecting companies for the accelerator, we look for great founders who have promising products that we believe will improve healthcare,” Wellington says. “Phil and his team are doing important and innovative work through their development of NicoBoard. Our NICU clinicians and accelerator team are excited for Nicolette’s participation in the program and are looking forward to providing support and feedback.”
Nicolette is a patient empowerment company. They build visual, audio, and interactive displays of individualized medical data and research to enable patients to understand their health quickly and with enough confidence to serve as their own healthcare advocate.
