1upHealth won the Diamond Award (1st place) on June 25th in MassChallenge's HealthTech Finale! This was the first year that a team won both the $100,000 grand prize from a panel of judges and the startup choice (by vote of others in the cohort) prize of $10,000! This year's cohort is building amazing companies so we are extremely grateful for even being in the same group and had no expectation to win. We also want to congratulate the other winners including GoGoGrandparent, Pixm, Marigold Health, and Welnys! We recommend checking out all the companies in the HealthTech cohort and seeing what they are doing as well.
