VigilantDX Pitches at the ‘Midwest COVID-19 Innovation Showcase’

COVID Showcase title screenWe were delighted to be selected as one of 14 startups, from 110 that applied, to present at a great virtual event yesterday. It was put on by the gBeta Medtech folks, part of the very well respected gener8tor startup accelerator, which is ranked in the top 15 of such programs in the country. It has a presence in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and several other states, and an ecosystem of investors nationwide.

Each startup had just four minutes to pitch, then two minutes for questions. So it was a challenge to tell our great story in such a short time! But it worked well, and I’d be happy to share my slide deck with you as a PDF. (Just email me at and tell me about yourself.) More than 250 attended the event!

After our pitch, we had four chat rooms of 15 minutes each with certain attendees who had signed up for private discussions with us. Our CEO, Rick Carlson, joined me for these discussions. We were quite impressed with the quantity – and quality – of these folks and the questions they asked, and we will be actively following up with them.

Our sincere thanks to the gener8tor gBeta Medtech staff, and especially to Jackie Mejia, the program director. Also thanks to the many great sponsors. We look forward to more opportunities like this to get the VigilantDX story out there, as we continue to make significant progress!
