SplashX Invent Health - Behavioral and Mental Health

Twilight tech talk and mixer for entrepreneurs, inventors, and investors

About


Welcome to SplashX Invent Health (#splashxinventhealth), a quarterly twilight salon-styled tech talk and mixer produced by HP and Vator, where valuable lessons and insights are shared by investors, founders, and C-level executives from healthtech pioneers and healthcare incumbents. SplashX Invent Health is designed to take a 360-degree view of one particular topic.

In this case, the topic is “Behavioral and Mental Health.” Behavioral health promotes well-being by preventing mental disorder, as common as stress and anxiety, which without being addressed appropriately can lead to more serious illnesses, such as chronic conditions, substance abuse and addictions. All of this falls under our mental well-being, in other words - mental health.

Unfortunately, there’s a rise of mental illness across the country with one out of five Americans suffering from some sort of mental disorder. In the case of depression, it’s become almost an epidemic from from being a rare condition 50 years ago. Critics argue the rise has a lot to do with pathologizing normal psychic and somatic behavior, meaning society’s idea of normal often means never feeling sad or hopeless. Some argue antidepressant drugmakers, who’ve seen their drug usage rise 400 percent in two decades are behind the pathologizing.

These pervasive conditions have behavioral health startups creating solutions and treatment modalities to help those across the spectrum from mindfulness-based therapies, cognitive behavioral and psychodynamic therapies to digital therapeutics. What are these new technologies and services and are they effective? How are employers and health organizations incorporating them?

HP’s Dr. Archana Dubey, Frances [add Fran here] and Vator’s Bambi Francisco are hosting the event.

Vator (short for innovator) is a vibrant startup and investor community, founded by veteran, award-winning business journalist, Bambi Francisco.

Splash is Vator’s large startup and investor festival and one of the most popular pitch competitions in the U.S.

SplashX is Vator’s intimate Splash by night, a tech talk series and mixer where top influencers, entrepreneurs, and investors share insights on what's trending and valuable lessons on fundraising, building, and scaling a startup.

Launched in 2010 in San Francisco, Splash events, competitions, and verticals, such as Splash Health, Post Seed, and SplashX have expanded to NY, LA, London, and Oakland.

Alumni

Vator alumni have raised $1B-plus in follow-on capital. Here are a few:



Vator Splash gives you a lot more than a fabulous evening of networking; it gives you access to an entire community of active investors and inspiring entrepreneurs that are making it happen. The event generated significant exposure for our online travel dashboard venture. Weeks after presenting we raised $100K from an investor who saw the online video of our Vator pitch.

DogVacay.com won Vator Splash LA in June 2012. The competition allowed us an opportunity to meet and pitch against some of the great Los Angeles startups and further foster our entrepreneurial community. There was such a positive energy with so many great minds providing insightful feedback throughout the night. Two paws up, Vator!

Aaron Hirschhorn

Founder & CEO at DogVacay

Vator's competition platform made it simple to judge contestants by accessing video, PPT, ratings, executive summaries all in one place. It's the most efficient solution to judging competitions and it makes the process of judging a lot more fun! And the Vator Splash competition makes it easy and efficient to review a large number of early-stage startups that I would not otherwise have been exposed to

Jeremy Liew

The event provides results: a significant number of investors, advisors and business development opportunities arose after we won Vator Splash in front of a crowd of more than 200. Furthermore, one of the judges - Dave McClure - ended up investing in our company. Finally, VatorSplash was a great momentum-builder for us as we were getting ready to fundraise. The victory provided social proof to prospective investors and increased our chances of successfully attracting investment. We went on to raise $1M from a great group of angel investors!

Co-founder, Udemy

The Vator community and its Splash event provided the perfect launch pad to generate exposure for our company. Winning Vator Splash 2013 SF gave us the exposure, quality venture capital meetings and network effect every startup needs to initiate and complete a successful round. The very next quarter, we raised a $4M Series A. Thanks Vator!

The VatorSplash events have been a fantastic opportunity to see great start-ups, connect with other investors, and hear from industry visionaries. Javelin has proudly sponsored the event for many years, and plans to keep actively supporting it for many more."

The Post.Seed Conference is the very first event of its kind. Startups seem to make or break their future in the post-seed gap, but financing is becoming so difficult to secure during this period. We can see this trend having a huge impact on the future of tech entrepreneurship, and we want to see what the best minds have to say about it.



Paul Martino

Managing Partner, Bullpen Capital

This gap is a new phenomenon, making it unfamiliar ground for both entrepreneurs and investors to navigate. But it’s a reality that’s not going away. In order to understand how to build the best startups, we need to address how to get through this stage. For early-stage founders and investors, the perspectives on financing and the networking opportunities will be invaluable.



Bambi Francisco Roizen

Founder & CEO, Vator

The Series A ‘crunch’ is no small matter for startups that are trying to beat overwhelming odds. Post Seed is all about giving early-stage entrepreneurs and investors a forum to discuss some of the more pressing issues around fundraising. We want to start the discussion for both entrepreneurs and investors.



Brandon Zeuner

Managing Partner, Venture51

I’ve attended the Splash event over the last few years, and it is one of my favorite tech events due to the quality of entrepreneurs and investors who attend. For Splash 2016, we were fortunate to make it to the finals, pitch Mark Cuban, and take home the win! Soon after, we successfully announced a $2.3M SEED round. The Vator team has become family since, and we are so fortunate to have been given the opportunity. We highly recommend being part of Vator and its events as a way to expand your knowledge, network, and success. Cheers!
