testimonials

Hear what our investors are saying about us

HIP has provided opportunities to become involved in (and potentially improve) cutting edge tech that I would otherwise have never been able to access.

Dr. Peter Beitsch

CO-FOUNDER, TME

HIP is a great opportunity to expand your network and gain access to early stage startups that are reimagining all aspects of healthcare.

Jeremy Anderson

PRESIDENT, SKIPIFY

Excellent experienced and knowledgeable investor group, who consistently give presenters valuable insight and advise.

Margit Chapman

HEALTHCARE ANGEL INVESTOR AND ADVISOR

The HIP events have been a unique experience and fills a needed gap of aligning vetted early stage health companies with multi-faceted investors that are also expert advisors and potential adopters of the startups product or services. 


Funding with followthru. Great model

Dr. Rakesh Patel

CO-FOUNDER, TME

HIP allows investors to stay on the cutting-edge of healthcare technology while providing companies the opportunity to hear unbiased feedback from seasoned leaders in the healthcare field—it’s a perfect fit.

Dr. Barry Rosen

MANAGING PARTNER, TME

Samir does a thorough job at ensuring there’s value all around — for entrepreneurs & for HIP members/investors. His thoroughness gets to direct feedback and action for founders which I appreciate. Coming at this as a previous founder is another true differentiator.

Joseph Whitner

COO/HEAD OF INVESTMENTS, STARTUPBOOTCAMP MIAMI

HIP is doing and excellent job of bring entrepreneurs, investors and health care together. Finding some really interesting and talented individuals and companies that want to make a difference and have the potential to do so.

Charles Aunger

MANAGING DIRECTOR TECHNOLOGY, HEALTH2047

HIP is a great forum to collaborate with smart, like minded fellow investors from different professional backgrounds, and have fun while making serious investment decisions.

Rajiv Puranik

VP PLATFORM ENGINEERING AND CLOUD, VOCERA

HIP is redefining how innovative ideas and the companies that create them get positioned in the healthcare investment community. If you are a founder of a digital health startup there is no better place to get smart seed money. If you are an investor, because of the curated environment that HIP has created you can use your time and capital more effectively.

Yuri Sudhakar

SVP, BIOTELEMETRY

Enjoy collaboration and learning from innovative minds

Neerav Jadeja

CEO, PARADISE VALLEY HOSPITAL (PRIME HEALTH)

HIP is a great community for all members of the healthcare community to collaborate and promote innovation

Arun Penmetsa

PARTNER, STORM VENTURES

HIP is for like minded investors who are looking for curated and vetted startups

Kamal Gogineni

CO-FOUNDER, MEDNEON

I enjoy the diverse mix of participants and the collegial approach to the events.

Dr. Gary Goldman

FOUNDER, GLOBAL HEALTH IMPACT FUND

I am involved in several angel groups and really like HIP. HIP offers both sides: great start-up investments that have been vetted and an investor community that really understands the healthcare space. It offers a networking opportunity with many great professionals and opportunity to join an organization that is constantly expanding and improving. Samir does a great job in managing and organizing HIP and is constantly thinking about ways to improve. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, I really enjoy interacting with the individuals in the group, they are all great people.
