Today Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced GYANT has been selected as one of ten finalists in the inaugural AWS Healthcare Accelerator. In collaboration with KidsX, a digital health accelerator owned by Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, the AWS accelerator was created to address the crucial need for healthcare innovation and collaborative solutions that can help healthcare customers respond to their challenges.
The first ever AWS Healthcare Accelerator cohort represents a diverse group of healthcare solutions backed by diverse leadership, with 90% of the cohort having diversity of leadership and 70% being female founded. These 10 finalists are working to solve many of the strategic imperatives of AWS healthcare customers.
Over four weeks, these ten startups will be virtually connected with AWS Partners, AWS technical experts, subject matter experts, and AWS healthcare customers. The goal is to allow them to experiment with AWS technologies and accelerate their growth through a foundation immersed in proper architecture, operations, and data in the cloud. The program begins with a deep dive and assessment of each startup to understand their current state. We then immerse them in a carefully designed curriculum focused on hands-on technical training and architectural review and provide each of them with up to $25,000 in AWS Promotional Credit.
The accelerator will culminate in a virtual demo day on October 28, 2021.
