On Wednesday health startup incubator Rock Health graduated its fourth class of 14 companies, bringing its total number of portfolio companies to 49. In addition to producing excellent reports on topics such as digital health funding and sensors, Rock Health appears to have lived up to its name by, well, rocking health. Their Director of Marketing and Media, Amy Puliafito, sent us an email with the following highlights:
- As of February 19th, 2013, Rock Health portfolio companies have raised over $43M in funding, averaging nearly $900,000 per startup, not including Rock Health’s investment.
- According to AngelList, Rock Health companies have the third highest valuation of all incubators and accelerators, following only Y Combinator and StartX.
- Since its inception, Rock Health has received over 1,500 startup applications, accepting approximately 3% of applicants for each cohort.
With that acceptance rate Rock Health is harder to get into than medical school, not to mention more appealing financially. The fourth class, which they call their “most impressive class yet,” must have been attracted to the upped ante of a $100,000 convertible note in comparison to previous classes’ $20K offer. We already covered some of the companies in this fourth batch, and will certainly be writing about more of them in the not-too-distant future. Learn more about them here:
