Application Review

The Rock Health application review wall at the Mayo Clinic.

We are thrilled by the outpouring of support and excitement generated these past weeks, and we look forward to helping entrepreneurs drive radical improvements in health. Applications keep rolling in, and our team is hard-at-work reviewing them.  Here are some common questions we’ve been getting:

When is the application deadline?
May 13, 2011 at NOON Pacific.

What’s the application review process?
Applications are reviewed by an expert selection committee with knowledge spanning software and hardware technologies, venture investment, law, advanced medical specialties and clinical care. They provide feedback on the applications and suggest startups to interview. All applications are looked at by multiple evaluators to ensure comprehensive feedback.

How many teams will interview?
30-50 semi-finalist teams are being invited to interview on a rolling basis.

How many startups will be selected?
This round (June – November), we will be selecting up to 10-12 startup teams. We’d love to work with everyone immediately, but have many more qualified applicants than spaces in the program.
