Fueling Philly’s Digital Health Economy

Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017 | 10:30 PM-12:30 AM

The recently announced $6 million seed stage funding partnership between Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Independence Health Group, and Safeguard Scientifics will provide opportunities for the region’s healthcare entrepreneurs. But if Greater Philadelphia wants to become the preeminent city for digital health, collaboration is necessary from every part of the economy.

University City Science Center President & CEO Steve Tang, PhD. will lead a discussion about initiatives that are fueling growth – from non-profit, corporate, and entrepreneurial perspectives – and outline the missing pieces. If you’re someone with a stake in the future of the region’s digital health economy, join the conversation on Jan. 31. Light fare will be available.

Panelists include:

  • Scott Nissenbaum, Chief Investment Officer, Ben Franklin Technology Partners
  • Tom Olenzak, Managing Director, Strategic Innovation Portfolios, Independence Blue Cross
  • David Luk, Principal, Safeguard Scientifics
