We're In The Running To Join TMCx 2018

When Justin, Thomas, and I first discussed building a company together, we were sure of a few core beliefs:
- we knew we wanted to help companies solve complex problems with AI
- we knew we wanted to live and work in Charlotte, our shared home city
- we knew we wanted to create a values-driven team and culture

What we didn't know is which industry (industries?) we wanted to channel our energy into, and what specific challenges we wanted to build our business around.
As a lot of founders can attest, the answer to the question can often come about serendipitously and unexpectedly as a result of shared personal interests. Fortunately, that was the case for us.
Our early stage brainstorming together took place in Thomas' backyard office-garage (a particularly rad set-up, worthy of its own photoshoot... future blog post...). It was during those conversations that we quickly realized we shared a passion for the healthcare industry (other future blogs posts will include our stories behind that shared passion...). 
Since those early brainstorms, and with the officially founding of Digitize.AI, the three of us have been exploring/prototyping ways to create value in healthcare while we've also built up our advisory business and client roster. More news on healthcare front will be coming soon (post-"stealth mode" product announcements, client news, team expansions, etc), but in the meantime we wanted share one piece of exciting news:
Digitize.AI has been named a finalist to join the Texas Medical Center's TMCx Digital Health 2018 accelerator program (official press release below). If you're not familiar with TMCx, check out their website for a quick run-down (their team does a far better/pithier job than I could of explaining scope and awesomeness of this program). 
LSS, we wrapped the interview process and soon know if we're to be invited to join the 2018 class. But the fact that Digitize.AI was selected from thousands of applicants to be a Finalist is, in itself, an exciting validation for our product and services vision. Win or lose, this is a confidence-building victory for our team as we head into the holidays. 
More, hopefully good, news to come on this topic soon.
