Miami, Florida Oct 18, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – The United States Consumer Healthcare Advocacy Group has been accepted into its first accelerator sponsored by IBM and Village Capital.

Each startup will receive technical and business mentorship and will work closely with industry experts, investors, and ecosystem partners to develop the networks they need to scale their solution. Additionally, each startup can earn $120,000 in IBM Cloud credits and there is no fee or equity taken from participating companies.

Says USCHAG CEO, Heather Logrippo: “Our team is very excited to have been chosen to participate in this accelerator for many reasons, but especially because of our long-standing partnership with IBM and their commitment to our success in changing the paradigm of how healthcare is delivered to consumers. Besides the priceless collaboration with the IBM and Village Capital team, this opportunity will allow us to scale faster and ultimately help more people navigate the many confusing aspects of managing their healthcare.”

USCHAG has been in development for over 10 years and has created an operating system that is able to solve any healthcare-related issue for our members, while taking the burden of having to navigate the pitfalls alone, completely away. Where once there was confusion, there now is clarity guided by a human that not only gets your issues solved, but also cares for you as a family member would.
