‘Healthbox’ Incubator Kickstarts Innovators

 Just seven of the 91 entrepreneurs that pitched a health care startup are getting a boost from Healthbox Tampa, a business incubator that provides seed money, office space and partnerships with health care providers, the Tampa Bay Timesreports.

Part of the financial backing for the entrepreneurs, who will train for four months at the Tampa Bay WaVE business incubator in downtown Tampa, comes from health insurance giant Florida Blue, the Times reports.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
