Health:Further Festival 2017 / August 22 - 25, 2017

The annual gathering for people who believe that we can make healthcare better, together. We believe that healthcare is changing rapidly and that tomorrow's healthcare will be better for all of us. That's why we created Health:Further. We gather the nation's leading minds once a year to further the dialogue on innovation in our industry. Providers, payers, practitioners, investors, employers, entrepreneurs and movers and shakers from all corners of the evolving healthcare industry congregate for two days in arguably the center of it all: Nashville, Tennessee.


Ohana is a one of a kind internship experience designed to connect the best and brightest entrepreneurial students from all over the country, with high-growth start-ups that are solving some of the biggest problems in healthcare.  It’s our belief that, in order to build a great company, you need great people. Sure, having a kick-ass product is cool, but having a kick-ass culture with kick-ass people is magic.  At Ohana, we connect incredible students who are passionate about moving healthcare innovation forward, with companies that are doing just that.


If we know one thing about entrepreneurs, it’s that they’re time-starved and usually don’t have a ton of money to burn. If we know two things about entrepreneurs, it’s that you can’t do everything on your own. Through our Starting Blocks program, we’ve pre-negotiated pricing with best-in-class vendors, from web developers to accounting to marketing, so you can get your business off to a running start.


We aren’t going to lie to you. Raising follow-on capital can be a grueling process. But it’s easier when you’ve got someone in your corner. We’ve built relationships with investors across the southeast in VC firms and angel groups so that your conversations are more productive. JSF is a trusted source of deal flow for investors across the country, so the doors we knock on often get answered.
