There are no fees or equity required by entrepreneurs to participate.
Applications are currently open for the next Health IT Connections cohort (no relocation required). For more information, visit www.njii.com/healthit. Applications available at: https://judithsheft.wufoo.com/forms/z669z3a1j1u3bk/
