Startup Pitch Event

Are you part of a start-up with seed funding that has a functional prototype designed to address an issue in pediatric medicine?

If so, apply to iSPI’s pitch competition!

Up to seven start-ups will have the opportunity to pitch their innovative product or service to a panel of industry innovators, influencers, and physicians from top pediatric hospitals around the globe. This years’ focus is solutions that target the social and emotional determinants of health for children and their families.


  • Any start-up with seed funding and a functional prototype or MVP qualifies
  • Participants will be selected based on the following criteria:
    • product / market fit
    • size of the issue being addressed
    • novelty of the solution
    • scalability


The pitch competition takes place from August 18 to 20 at PEDS2040 located at the Pasea Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.


We are working with our sponsors to finalize the prizes.
