StartUp Health Festival

The StartUp Health Festival: A Legacy of Moonshot Thinking & Global Collaboration

In 2011, Steven Krein and Unity Stoakes announced the launch of StartUp Health after sitting down in the Oval Office with then-President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. In the meeting Krein and Stoakes shared their vision for investing in Health Transformers to fuel a health revolution, starting with an annual gathering of Health Transformers in San Francisco. The rest, as they say, is history.

The 2020 StartUp Health Festival is Jan 13-14. Apply to attend our 8th annual gathering of Health Transformers.
