Relevant Health, a new accelerator for health-focused tech startups, announced its first cohort this week — and a Baltimore startup is among the seven companies.
The accelerator, which is run by a partnership of BioHeaIth Innovation, Inc., ProductSavvy Consulting and Montgomery County Economic Development runs over a five-month program. Companies get access to coworking in Rockville and other support from the D.C.-area health-tech community, which congregates around Rockville and Bethesda partially due to the National Institutes of Health headquarters nearby. The startups get up to $50,000 in funding in exchange for 8 percent equity.
Representing Baltimore is AgeWell Biometrics.
We saw a pitch from the company in September at an Aging 2.0 event in Baltimore. Physical therapist-turned-entrepreneur Joshua Wies described the startup’s efforts to create a system to help healthcare workers detect a person’s risk of falling. Designed for use with seniors, Equilibrium looks to combine wearables and sensors with smartphone apps to analyze balance and movement patterns.
