Our national fight against COVID still continues in round 1. And it has been a roller coaster ride for most digital health startups here in 2020 so far. After jumping out of the gates fast, U.S. digital health companies have raised an extraordinary $5.4 billion in venture capital support across the first six months of 2020. The first half of 2020 saw more support than any previous first half from years 2011 to 2019. And there is one Indianapolis company that is capitalizing on this growth and doesn’t plan on stopping. 

In today’s pitch episode of the Powderkeg Podcast, you’ll hear from Roger Deetz, Vice President of Technology at Springbuk, a health analytics software solution focused on preventing disease through data.
