Lake Nona Medical City’s first class of health care tech startups is underway.

The Health Box Studio program will help grow 11 companies through the end of June, when they will make a pitch for investor money. Products range from software to artificial intelligence to a smart pill box.

Jessica Houston is with Guide Well, Florida Blue’s Parent, which has hosted the HealthBox in other parts of the state.

“We had studios across Florida, in Jacksonville, Tampa and Miami,” Houston said. “This is the first time we’re hosting the studio in Lake Nona.”

 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 Times reports.
