NEC announces newest “Project Healthcare” cohort, new eight-week “Telehealth Academy”

The Nashville Entrepreneur Center (NEC) has made two major program announcements recently. One was participants in the 2021-2022 cohort for “Project Healthcare,” Nashville’s leading healthcare entrepreneurship initiative that drives transformation in the industry through tailored programming and critical connections. The other was a new program focused on telehealth.

Hailing from across the country, the participating entrepreneurs in the latest “Project Healthcare” cohort will have access to a comprehensive curriculum that includes meetings with more than 70 industry expert mentors, connections to potential investors, and the opportunity to engage with other healthcare business leaders.

The announcement of the 14 companies came shortly after NEC launched a complementary program named the “Telehealth Academy.” It is an eight-week program designed for industry professionals and early stage innovators who are interested in garnering insights from top faculty addressing telehealth, virtual care and digital strategies.

Programming for the “Telehealth Academy” begins September 14 with three-hour sessions every Tuesday through November 2.
