PharmStars’ 58 Alumni Startups

Startup Testimonials

“viO HealthTech recently graduated from the fabulous PharmStars accelerator. Couldn’t recommend this program more highly. Real, practical advice and mentoring, and curated introductions to Pharma members.”

CEO, viO HealthTech

”The PharmStars experience was instrumental in our company's ability to articulate our value proposition to the pharma industry. Working with the leadership at PharmStars gave us relevant commercial guidance and valuable feedback on our business model. They created an ecosystem where Pharma companies were able to learn about our company and product, enabling the creation of a pipeline and potential partnerships. I'd recommend PharmStars to any young startup trying to build a pharma-facing business model.”

Founder & CEO,  Manta Cares

“PharmStars offered an unparalleled opportunity for us to engage with pharma innovation leaders. The insights and feedback we received have been instrumental in refining our strategy and product offering to align more closely with the needs of the pharmaceutical industry:

Co-Founder and President, KEEP Health

"Every single customer conversation at the Showcase was excellent and we have clear steps and follow ups. These have been the best one-on-ones that I've had with any pharma clients."

CEO, Biostrap

"I can’t imagine a way we could have gotten this far this quickly with so many pharma in parallel without deploying a much larger sales force."

Vice President for Product, nference

“Having a focused pharma audience made the Showcase Event very effective. Each of our pharma company meetings included multiple folks from data science and innovation. We’re optimistic that this will lead to more meetings and eventually several partnerships.”

CEO, Centaur Labs

“We walked away from the Showcase with immediate action items and continued conversations with everyone we met.”

CEO, Varient

“We went from selling at 1 big pharma company to promising prospects at 5 overnight.”

CEO and Cofounder, Prism Analytic Technologies

“It’s nice how there are only 10-12 startups in this cohort. In contrast, a very well-known Silicon Valley accelerator we applied to before has 377 startups in their latest cohort, and I imagine that while there’s power in numbers network wise, when there are way fewer peers, you get to know everyone better and also more attention from mentors and sponsors.”

CEO, Seascape Clinical
