On Monday the 26th , the program kicked off with a great set of 7 companies joining the Relevant Health partners in our HQ in Rockville. We encourage you to take a look at what each company is working on - we've posted short bios on our website.
The first week kicked off with orientation. Among the highlights:
- A couple of “grounding exercises” - one to map skills and areas of need among company members and a design/user interview exercise that resulted in some interesting, completely non-health related solutions to gift giving (credit to the Stanford Design School for the design exercise concept);
- Introduction sessions with Biohealth Innovation, Product Savvy, and Montgomery County Chief Innovation Officer Dan Hoffman;
- Kick off sessions with Alan Langelli, Partner at Aronson LLC, on accounting basics and Jamie Lacey-Moreira with PressCom Public Relations on strategic messaging;
- We even played bocce.
