6 health tech startups chosen for Michigan accelerator bootcamp

XLerateHealth, a healthcare accelerator program originally based in Louisville, Ky., announced on July 9 the first cohort of startups chosen to join its bootcamp program in Flint, Mich.

The bootcamp accelerator spans 12 weeks, culminating in a "Demo Day," during which each of the cohort's six startups will pitch their companies to potential investors and partners in the healthcare ecosystem. The Flint accelerator was launched in January with funding from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and 100K Ideas, and an aim of revitalizing the region.

Here are the first six startups to join XLH Flint:

  • Bisep (Niagara Falls, Ontario): creates medical devices such as a mechanism connecting walkers to wheelchairs to increase ambulation and decrease falls.
  • Crown Mallard (East Lansing, Mich.): develops products to reduce cross-contamination from disposable gloves in healthcare and food services.
  • El-Opira (Detroit): uses biomedical imaging techniques to improve diagnosis of skin and brain cancers.
  • HealthFreelance (Plymouth, Mich.): provides healthcare organizations with a digital hiring platform to find, connect with and hire experienced employees.
