“From the moment our company was selected to participate in the inaugural Fire Pitch Competition, their investment in our success began. The amazing women of IGNITE are intent on making a difference.  And that they have! Taking 1st Place at Fire Pitch Competition ’17 proved pivotal in positioning our company to attain the next critical milestones on our roadmap. I am incredibly proud of our journey through part 1 of the Fire Pitch rewards. Revealix proudly joins the ranks of TMCx’s Digital Health Accelerator notable alumni, an incredible program and invaluable prize! The warm reception, relationships and recognition that were born from this experience continue to build. In fact, I’m thrilled at how Ignite Fire’s network is expanding our reach beyond Texas too. Look for Revealix to participate in the upcoming MedtechVision 2018 conference in Menlo Park, CA.”
