University of Louisville LaunchIt

XLerateHealth partnered with UofL’s Forcht Center for Entrepreneurship to offer LaunchIt, a 10-week lean startup training for entrepreneurs and biomedical researchers, in Flint, MI and throughout the XLeratorNetwork.  LaunchIt addresses a range of important topics including an introduction to the “Lean Canvas” and “Customer Discovery”, marketing, legal, unit economics, sources of capital and more. After the featured presentation and large group session, the entrepreneurs work in smaller groups with a business coach. The XLerateHealth team have coached the healthcare & university biomedical researchers since the program’s inception in 2011.



XLerateHealth has partnered with flipMD, a new on-demand physician marketplace, to provide customer discovery opportunities for XLH entrepreneurs looking for direct feedback and consultative engagements from physicians regarding their technologies. flipMD was built to provide a centralized physician marketplace where clients seeking medical expertise could find the best physician consultants for their particular job. flipMD physician consultants practice in every specialty throughout the country and the company has a goal to have 10,000 physicians onboarded by the end of 2021. Users of flipMD can filter through physician education, specialty, or region, create a job post regarding what they are looking for, and easily find a physician to engage in the needed work. XLH is thrilled to be able to offer this platform to our community of startup founders to better understand how physicians think about their product.
