On Thursday night the members of Team Health 2.0 NYC (Edbury, Kyle, Austin and yours truly) had a blast at the Blueprint Health launch party at their new 12,000 sf facility in the heart of Soho.  The event attracted a great crowd and included many, many familiar faces from the NYC healthtech scene.  As an added bonus we got to hear pitches from all the teams in the inaugural Blueprint class as well as chat with them later on.  Kudos to Brad and Mathew on the launch!

Kyle and I saw the space about a month ago and it’s amazing to see what the guys were able to do with it in just a few short weeks.  In fact, we like the new space so much that Team Health 2.0 NYC will be leaving our current digs in TriBeCa and moving in with the “blueprinters” (???) later on this month.  Co-locating with all these exciting start-ups is a unique opportunity and I think the cross-pollination across organizations will be a huge boost to the community as a whole.

On a final note, it was hard to watch the NYC internet boom of the late 90s pass me by as I was working as a medical resident at Columbia Presbyterian, and I always felt like I missed something big.  I have the feeling now that something REALLY BIG is happening in the healthtech space in general, and in NYC in particular, and I consider myself to be fortunate to be right in the middle of it.  Don’t know where this is all heading but looking forward to an exciting journey.
