ABOUT TTUHSC SLING HEALTH
A Group with a Common Passion
Sling Health is a biomedical design and entrepreneurship incubator founded in 2013 by Washington University students. Our goal is to solve real‐world healthcare problems while providing students with valuable experience in collaborative innovation. Sling Health teams of Engineering, Healthcare, Business, Graduate, and Undergraduate students engage with innovation, entrepreneurship, and interprofessional collaboration to address problems in healthcare.
Student teams tackle their chosen healthcare-related problem, perform customer/market discovery, undergo solution comparison, and advance the solution to the prototyping/mockup stage.
Sling Health provides ambitious, driven students with clinical problems, guidance from expert advisors, and possible funding opportunities. The curriculum includes lectures, milestones, and concludes with teams presenting at Sling Health’s National Demo Day to a panel of judges, potential investors, and the public.
