Telemedicine Company Wins $250K Prize, Named a Top Tech Startup
eVisit was just named one of six winners of the Spring 2015 Arizona Innovation Challenge, out of 138 tech applicants. As a challenge winner, the startup will receive a $250K grant to accelerate growth.
“Our team is incredibly honored to be named alongside the winning companies of a renowned competition like the Arizona Innovation Challenge,” says Bret Larsen, eVisit CEO. “Winning this means we’ll be able to continue to improve our telemedicine platform for doctors, and keep expanding job and business opportunities in Arizona. I think it also shows the healthcare community that eVisit is doing exciting things and making extraordinary progress for a startup that’s less than a year old.”
A year ago, eVisit’s cofounders had a vision of a telehealth solution that would let doctors connect with their patients online to improve patient satisfaction and care outcomes. Since then, the company has grown to 17 employees, built an incredible telemedicine platform for providers that is already generating revenue, and raised over $1 million in funding. In the popular field of telemedicine, eVisit continues to stand out as the most user-friendly, physician-first telemedicine platform for providers to treat their patients via video chat.
The eVisit team is honored to be included among the five other impressive companies who were named AIC winners.
"As they commercialize their technology, these innovative companies will continue to create high-quality jobs that have a positive economic impact, and we're thrilled to support them in that journey," said Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority.
