The startups are hiring at the Sprint Mobile Health Accelerator.
Seven of the 10 companieshave posted openings
as they’re building not only their companies but also the teams to accomplish that mission.
In addition to several technology jobs, such as app developer and firmware developer, the postings include marketing jobs.
At the accelerator in the Kansas City Crossroads Arts District, the companies are working with mentors and each other for 90 days. At the end of the program, they’ll each have an opportunity to pitch their businesses to potential backers.
“Although the companies are just several weeks into the program, they are meeting with dozens of mentors, growing fast and already some teams are hoping to speed up development by leveraging talent from the Kansas City region,” said Kevin McGinnis, vice president of a Sprint division called Pinsight Media+ than works with the accelerator.
The business accelerator selected the 10 companies from an undisclosed number of applicants. Each is building a business focused on combining health care and mobile technology. Techstars, based in Boulder, Colo., operates the accelerator.
