What investors think about the state of digital health funding

Last week we briefed you on the record shattering funding streak of the first half of 2017. Then we sat down with two other investors, Bessemer’s Steve Kraus and Kaiser Permanente Ventures’ Liz Rockett to bring you a deeper look into:

  • The most exciting opportunities in digital health
  • How companies are being evaluated in this uncertain, albeit cash-rich, environment
  • What we expect for the upcoming IPO market
  • Whether or not unicorns are real
  • What recent tech giant moves mean for the industry
  • Where healthcare transformation is in its long process of digitization and maturation
