Public Profile

About This Organization

Abbreviation(s):
Sling
Purpose:
Sling Health is a biomedical design and entrepreneurship incubator with the goal of solving everyday, real-world problems that clinicians may not have the time or expertise to address, while providing students with valuable experience. We do this by turning teams of students into medtech start-ups. Sling Health provides teams with clinical problems and gives students from multiple backgrounds the opportunity to work in teams to develop innovative solutions. Teams of engineering, medical, business, graduate, and undergraduate students work together over two semesters to brainstorm, research, design, prototype, and test novel devices and software applications for patient care. We provide teams with funding, lab space, equipment, and guidance from clinical, technical, and entrepreneurial advisors. The Sling Health timeline concludes with presenting final designs at Demo Day to a panel of judges, potential investors, and the public. Teams use this event to share their prototype with the community and "test the waters" of the local entrepreneurship ecosystem.
