Inaugural Medical Capital Innovation Competition aims to boost Greater Cleveland’s start-up culture
Explorys, a bio-data company spun off from Cleveland Clinic research, was sold to IBM in 2015, for hundreds of millions of dollars.
The company is staying in Cleveland, in new offices very near the clinic.
More recently, Cover My Meds, birthed in Twinsburg, sold to Mckesson for more than a billion dollars.
It plans to retain its presence here, and in Columbus.
Where will the next wave of high-value start-ups and the good-paying jobs they create come from?
Maybe from among the 27 teams, 5 collegiate and 22 professional taking part in the inaugural medical capital innovation competition held today and tomorrow at the global center for health innovations, in downtown Cleveland.
