San Francisco-based mobile health and Health 2.0 incubator, Rock Health, that aims to provide healthcare expertise, development resources and eventually funding to winning ideas. The core team at Rock Health includes Medical Director Nate Gross (who is also involved with the soon-to-launchDoximity), Interim CFO Dan Monahan, Creative Director Leslie Ziegler and Managing Director Halle Tecco. According to Rock Health’s website the incubator’s investor partners include Accel Partners, Mohr Davidow Ventures, Aberdare Ventures, California HealthCare Foundation and others. Importantly, the team is also working closely with the Mayo Clinic: “No experience in the health space? That’s great. We’ve built a program to give you resources and connections in the sector. And our friends at the Mayo Clinic (consistently ranked one of the top hospitals in the world) are excited to help you out,” the incubator’s FAQ reads. Rock Health’s Halle Tecco explained that the incubator intends to bring new talent to healthcare: “We are trying to focus on the technology itself and are looking to find technologists,” she said. “We are trying to bring in really great developers and programmers and encourage experimentation and out-of-the-box thinking about healthcare.”
