Is Your Startup Working to Make Health Care More Affordable?

Hospital executives from around the country will gather December 3-4 in Chicago for the AHA’s 2018 Executive Forum: Addressing Disruption Through Innovation & Value. This event will examine how disruptive market forces in health care are fueling innovation and improving value in care delivery.

We know that some of the best innovations will come from the startup community, and we are dedicating a portion of this event to foster connections between health care executives and startups we believe offer the most promising solutions. Specifically, on December 4 from 8:00 to 9:00 am, we will feature 10 health care startup companies during a special breakfast session, Bacon & Eggs With a Side of Startup.

During this breakfast, the pre-selected startups will meet with hospital and health system leaders to share their products and solutions — all of which have the potential to decrease health care costs, improve quality and enhance the patient experience. Information about each startup, products and solutions will be provided to attendees in advance; and the session also will allow startups to share their products and solutions with multiple executives through informal conversations.

If selected, your startup also will receive complimentary registration for the Executive Forum for up to two individuals, allowing you to further network with hospital and health system leaders. We anticipate between 150 and 200 hospital executives will attend this Executive Forum.


Space is limited. We will be accepting ten startup companies for this event through an abbreviated application process.

  • Applications will be accepted through August 24
  • Selected startups will be notified by September 4
