Fire Pitch Sponsorship 

Plans for the 3rd Annual Fire Pitch Competition, hosted by Ignite Healthcare Network, are well underway to uncover technology-driven, women-led companies, poised to transform the healthcare industry. 

The achievements of women-led companies have reached a new level of recognition and yet continue to be inordinately underfunded in venture capital. Research conducted by the McKinsey Global Institute associates the unique leadership skills of women with a 41% higher return on equity and 56% better operating results for women-led businesses. The data supports change in the venture capital arena.  

Ignite Healthcare Network, located in Houston, Texas, is a coalition of accomplished women executives with unique knowledge and experience in diverse healthcare sectors. The purpose of Ignite is to engage women in leadership positions to influence and shape the future of industry.  

Ignite’s Fire Pitch Sponsorshipspecifically recognizes outstanding women entrepreneurs in the healthcare technology sector.  

Please consider participating as a sponsor of the Fire Pitch Competition on October 17, 2019. As a sponsor, you have the opportunity to champion innovative companies, led by dynamic influencers, who may very well be the next disruptors of the healthcare industry.
