AZZLY Rize software, helps Addiction Treatment and Behavioral Healthcare organizations treat more individuals.” Coletta added, “Government statistics show that there are 25 million individuals in need of service and less than 10% receive treatment. We want to be part of the solution.”
The other five companies selected from a strong applicant pool are 20Lighter (Delray Beach, Fla.), Corstrata (Savannah, Ga), Healthy Bytes (Winston Salem, N.C.), Heno (Orlando, Fla.), Tao Connect (St. Petersburg, Fla.)
“We were thrilled with the quality of the applicant pool of female-founded companies at varying stages, which is why we made the decision to expand the program to include an Emerging Health Tech cohort for earlier stage companies as well as the Scale-Up Accelerator cohort for those that are more established. We are honored to be able to work with these amazing companies,” said Kirstie McCool, executive director of GuideWell Innovation. “The collaboration with Springboard brings forward a fantastic network of mentors that I know will help accelerate the growth of these companies.”
