SplashX Invent Health - Vitality: Lifestyle as a drug


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 “Lifestyle as a drug” -- vitality as a prescription for health.

As we consider new screening, diagnostic and treatment models to keep us healthy, we also need to keep in mind that all the new technologies in the world won’t help us, if we don’t help ourselves. As Dr. Marcelo Campos said: “We cannot prevent or reverse these diseases without a lifestyle focus.”

HP’s Dr. Archana Dubey, Fran Ayalasomayajula 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.
