Boston VCs HLM and Bessemer Venture Partners visiting the NYC Blueprint Health offices to talk with the teams about what they’re excited about in healthtech.  Today is also the 4 week “early” check in dinner at Blueprint Health - so we look forward to hosting a bunch more mentors this evening to see the progress the teams have made due to a lot of hard work!

To your health,

BPH Team   

Here’s a pic from our inaugural class launch event last Thursday 1/12 at our offices in SoHo.  Here’s a pic of Brad (left of the ppt screen) & Mathew (right) opening up the event!  More pics (and news) to come. Thanks to all of the mentors, LPs, and entire BPH community for the tremendous showing (~100 people in total).  The teams are already hard at work and look forward to many more interactions with the BPH community going forward.

Here’s a photo from our panel session during our mixer event this past Wednesday.  Thanks to Charles for moderating the panel (far left at the top), and thanks also to our great panelists - (from top down on the left), Andy, Reece, Mubeen, Jon and Steve.  It was a great turnout by BPH mentors and a few of our first batch of teams… there is a lot to do over the next few weeks, but we’re excited to kick things off officially starting January 9, 2012!

An interesting takeaway from from Edelman’s Health Baromater 2011 report (which can be downloaded here), as presented at this past Tuesday’s Startup Health roundtable.  Forget financial incentives and cash - your social network has more of an impact on health behavior!

Food for thought.

To your health,
