This is a very exciting time for entrepreneurs in this space as healthcare IT and medical device companies are having excellent M&A exits. According to Price Waterhouse’s Money Tree report, 41% of the venture capital comes from Silicon Valley in the San Francisco Bay area. These firms are looking to invest with a success rate of 1 in 10 being a big success, which in turn must provide a 15X return in order to provide an adequate return. The incubator model for startups has been shown to provide a 3 in 10 success, this produces a significant opportunity!  Funding plus nurturing produces results.  Best of luck in your funding endeavors.  Jose Bolanos, Managing Director
