What is Capital Factory?
Capital Factory is the center of gravity for entrepreneurs in Texas, the number one state for startups in the U.S. Thousands of entrepreneurs, programmers, and designers gather day and night, in-person and online, for meetups, classes, and coworking. With boots on the ground in Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, we meet the best entrepreneurs in Texas and introduce them to investors, employees, mentors, and customers. According to Pitchbook, Capital Factory has been the most active early-stage investor in Texas since 2010.
What is Health Supernova?
Health Supernova is the newest cornerstone event by Capital Factory, created to catalyze the health tech community in Texas and beyond. This free event is the one day where the hottest priorities and players in health tech take center stage to share insights, breakthroughs, and big opportunities ahead. If you’re working in health or biotech, it’s the place to be!
Health Supernova 2024 will deliver unmatched access across the health tech ecosystem so you can build relationships with investors, mentors, customers, and potential hires — and get smart on the hottest topics in health, medicine, and biotech.
Why was Health Supernova created?
In the nascent biotech ecosystem, billions of investment dollars are pouring in. Across the sector, everyone is eager to accelerate innovation and growth. Capital Factory is all in, with a growing health tech portfolio and powerful network to spark meaningful connections among health tech entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, and corporate partners. With so much noise and competition, we saw a clear opportunity to present trending technologies and paths forward across the ecosystem. That’s why we created Health Supernova.
How is this event different from other health/biotech events?
In two words: scale and intent. While there are certainly other health innovation events out there — and people working on this stuff every day — we created this event based on a model we know works by bringing many of the right people together. It’s uncommon to find a diverse group of participants, and this type of content, in one place. Health Supernova exists to do that, with the goal of adding collaborative fuel to the ﬁre of health innovation.
What sort of topics are covered?
Health Supernova content is informed by leaders in the space as well as the mavericks who are changing the game. We’ll have three tracks of learning to cover the hottest topics and technologies. Among the possibilities: Improvements in medical supply chains and hospital systems. Web3, digital and mental health solutions for preventative healthcare, EHR, and data science. Robots, medical devices, and diagnostic solutions. Human-machine and brain-computer interfaces. Genomic, synthetic biology, and pharma solutions. Just to name a few!
Who attends Health Supernova?
Leading entrepreneurs, investors, corporations, and decision-makers from around the world will attend Health Supernova. Why? Because time is money, and it takes way too much time to make connections across health innovation right now. While everyone may arrive with their own agendas, this event is the one place they can come to truly understand the possibilities. It’s the perfect way to validate rising market trends, slash the time it takes to identify viable partners and investments, and tell your story to people eager to find new ideas and partners.
Is this event just for startups, or can larger companies participate, too?
Not only can you attend, but we can’t wait to see you there. After all, health and biotech innovation often depend on larger companies that can help bridge the gap between what projects need and what smaller companies can deliver. When we talk about new partnerships, we are looking at you.
Are there limitations on who can attend?
Health Supernova is a free, public event open to anyone interested in health and biotech innovation. Space is limited — so act now to be sure you get in!
