Floreo accepted to the prestigious KidsX Accelerator

By Heather | Apr 27, 2022

We are thrilled to announce that we were chosen as one of eight members of the 2022 KidsX Accelerator.  We join the seven other pediatric-focused digital health companies who were invited to participate from a pool of more than 150 applicants after a series of interviews, diligence, and KidsX Selection Day – a live virtual pitch event for KidsX Member organizations to meet and vote on the companies that solve top problems at their organizations. The KidsX Accelerator’s applicants, interviewees, and cohort represent a diverse group of healthcare solutions by diverse leadership. 

The KidsX Accelerator brings together the top children’s hospitals and talented digital health companies to build, test and deploy software solutions to make pediatric care exceptionally effective, safe, efficient, and convenient for children and families, and we are so excited to be able to work together to continue to provide positive outcomes for even more Learners!
