Interested in the latest innovations in Healthtech? Look to the North, my friends. 

This week, NASDAQ welcomed NeuroOne, a Minneapolis-based medical tech company focused on improving surgical care for patients with neurological disorders. This latest IPO is part of a bigger Healthtech trend in the Twin Cities.

While many of us went stir crazy in the 2020 pandemic lockdowns, a few rising Minneapolis startups were busy looking for ways to bring health home. 

EmpowerU, an online social-emotional support platform, pairs struggling students with licensed therapists who help build the skills to take care of their mental health. 

Bright Health developed a health insurance service platform designed to deliver quality healthcare experience.

HistoSonics specializes in developing medical devices, interventional radiology, and surgical robotics.

MyMeds connects patients, caregivers, providers, and payors using real-time data integrations to create interactions when they matter most.

Recombinetics is a global leader in proprietary gene repair and gene-editing technology.

UnitedHealth Group is the most diversified health care company in the United States and a leader worldwide in helping people live.

All that innovation is going to need a local talent pipeline. North Stars, a nonprofit founded by Steve and Mary Grove (an 2020 Unvalley speaker) are helping to train the next generation of tech professionals with free summer boot camps for rising high schoolers in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
