FORT COLLINS - Innosphere, Colorado's leading science and technology incubator, announced it has partnered with PrIME Health Collaborative to enhance the development of Colorado's digital health ecosystem and increase the number of digital health startups in the state.

"It's an opportune time to be creating a digital health ecosystem in Colorado," said Jake Rishavy, founder of PrIME Health Collaborative and director of innovation and entrepreneurship at Denver South Economic Development Partnership.

"This industry has many business opportunities due to the rising need of new health care innovations. Digital health companies attract entrepreneurs because of both the investor interest in this space and all the new business models and digital applications that can be applied to health care."

Innosphere said it will promote PrIME activities in Northern Colorado and the incubator's client companies will gain a larger network to all the players in the digital health sector through PrIME's extensive network.

That network includes more than 700 health care administrators, physicians, technologists, academics, entrepreneurs and investors improving health care outcomes and reducing costs through commercialization of emerging technologies.

"Since PrIME represents a network of over 115 Colorado digital health companies, this partnership is a key part of building Innosphere's pipeline of quality startups," said Mike Freeman, Innosphere CEO.

"PrIME has been instrumental in identifying high-growth potential digital health startups for Innosphere."

Innosphere recently opened an office in INDUSTRY Denver, located in the RiNo redevelopment district to further launch a digital health-specific incubator program - the first of its kind in the state.

Innosphere and PrIME Health Collaborative will co-host an Innovation After Hours networking event today from 4-6 p.m. at Innosphere, 320 E. Vine Drive, Fort Collins.
