The CEOs, founders and other principals from the selected startups will spend the next four months developing relationships within the world’s largest medical complex while taking intensive courses to accelerate their groundbreaking digital devices and health care platforms.

The new companies, who are part of the sixth installment of TMCx, join a community of more than 80 companies who have already gone through the program and have raised more than $150 million.

“These companies bring digital health solutions that tackle the current challenges in health care to TMCx,” said Erik M. Halvorsen, Ph.D., director of the TMC Innovation Institute. “We are eager to see what insights they glean from working with the 23 hospitals in the Medical Center that will help them grow their companies. TMCx is proud to be a part of the journey that these 23 startups will take over the next four months.”
